Out of 31 students from the Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta, who had applied for internships with the Trinamool Congress last month, two have been selected, party spokesperson and MP Derek O’ Brien posted on his Twitter handle on Sunday.

He interviewed five students through video conference from New Delhi.

The main task of those selected will be to frame and execute an efficient communication strategy for the party in Lok Sabha elections.

The internship that will begin on March 15 will last two months.

Mr. O’ Brien has earlier said the internship will take place at the Trinamool headquarters in the city. The students will work alongside the party’s communication team.

He also reportedly said though applications were sought only from final year students, 17 first year students too applied for internship.

Fourteen students were asked to take part in a group discussion conducted by five core members of the party.
