Kolkata: State Urban Development and Municipal Affairs minister and Mayor Firhad Hakim on Friday criticised BJP for its dubious attempts to induct leaders from other parties.Hakim also reminded that not a single Trinamool Congress leader will join BJP despite its attempts. He said: “Those who consider politics as business can shift their loyalty from one party to other. But those who have grown up with the ideals of Trinamool Congress will never join another party.” Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata Bose”Trinamool Congress was formed by Mamata Banerjee with values and ideals. Those who are familiar with the values propagated by our party will never join any other party. People of the state have seen how Banerjee has fought for them. They have seen how the developments have taken place in the state after Banerjee became the Chief Minister,” Hakim said. He also said that as the BJP has no foothold in the state, it would always try to induct leaders from other parties through various means. He also addressed the CPI-M leaders in this regard, saying: “How can the people who are supposed to believe in the communist ideology join a communal party like BJP?”

Also in office are three Business Development Managers: Leanne Hill who serves Western and Central Canada; Gabrielle Lalime, Quebec; and Krystal Langenberg, Ontario & Atlantic Canada.At a welcome reception for trade media last night, Roberto Fusaro, MSC’s North America president, told Travelweek that the new office is a “testament” to the company’s commitment to the Canadian market.“We have big ambitions for Canada and we’ve set significant targets for Canada this year,” he said. “MSC has 19 offices around the world, which is how we sell to our markets. We want to get closer to our markets and understand what each needs in order to adapt our commercial and product offering. That’s why we’re making this investment in Canada.”Fusaro added that the company has seen significant growth in Canada, particularly in 2018.“We have a lot of ships coming to North America, including four sailing out of Miami next winter. Canada has responded very well so far but we believe that being local and replying quicker to travel agents’ needs will allow us to keep growing and growing,” he said.More news: Direct Travel names Smith as Senior VP, Leisure Marketing, North AmericaIan Patterson, country Manager of MSC Cruises Canada who previously served as Director of Business Development, was also present to meet the trade and extend a warm welcome.“As MSC Cruises expands globally, we see tremendous potential in the Canadian market, with Canadians continually showing increased interest in cruise vacations and more of our guests coming from the Canadian market,” he told Travelweek. “Canada is a distinct market with its own requirements and the opening of our new office will allow us to better serve the Canadian traveller.”MSC Cruises’ Canadian contact centre team membersIn conjunction with the office opening, MSC has launched Canadian websites for consumers (MSCCruises.ca) and for travel agents (mscbook.com/ca), which allow guests and agents to operate in Canadian dollars as well as access resources, information and tools. The websites will initially debut in English, with further enhancements and French versions rolling out by year’s end.“Ultimately, our goal is to be the easiest and most profitable brand to work with,” added Patterson. “With this new permanent presence in Canada, agents will benefit from a dedicated Canadian website and booking platform, providing direct tools and pricing in Canadian dollars to help them service their clients and provide accurate information.”More news: Marriott Int’l announces 5 new all-inclusive resorts in D.R. & MexicoAt the of 2019, MSC Cruises will have four ships serving North America out of Miami: MSC Seaside, MSC Divina, MSC Armonia and MSC Meraviglia, arriving in North America for the first time in October.
