Those not adhering to party discipline can go: Warns Trinamool Chief

Kolkata, Mar 8 : West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress (TMC) supremo Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday issued a stern warning to some leaders who were not “adhering to party discipline. Addressing the party’s extended organizational meeting at Nazrul Mancha here, Banerjee said without naming anyone, “No matter how greata leader is, if he does not adhere to party discipline, he will be expelled from the party.” “There are three-four leaders who are only thinking about their own publicity. They are telling the media whatever they feel like. Already, three-four such leaders have been cautioned,” Banerjee said. She added, “We have to work for the Trinamool by following its ideals and values. Everybody has to obey instructions. The door is open for those who do not obey. You can go”. In an interesting development, poll strategist Prashant Kishor shared the stage with the Trinamool supremo and her nephew Abhishek Banerjee in the meeting.
