Abhijit Mukherjee

Biography

The son of President Pranab Mukherjee, Abhijit Mukherjee, worked as a corporate executive for firms like the Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited, Maruti Udyog Limited, Steel Authority of India Limited and was the General Manager in charge of Corporate Social Responsibility in the Steel Authority of India Limited before he entered into politics under INC's banner in 2011.
He entered the political fray by winning the legislative seat in Nalhati, in the assembly elections. He contested in the 12th Lok Sabha elections from Jangipur constituency to fill the void left by his father Pranab Mukherjee following his appointment as President of India. He then won the 2014 elections from the same constituency. However, speculation is rife that he might contest with an AITC ticket in 2019 elections, but there is no credence to these rumors and cannot be substantiated as he hasn't confirmed the reports. His sister Sharmistha Mukherjee joined INC in 2014.
