Kolkata: Cracking the whip against infighting in Trinamool Congress, party head and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today asked a section of its leaders to stop indulging in it and stay from syndicate business.
"Mamata Banerjee today stressed on maintaining discipline in the party and asked a section of leaders to stay away from infighting and convey this message to the grassroots level," a senior party leader who was present in the meeting said on condition of anonymity.
"She clearly said that she will not tolerate complaints of syndicate business. She has asked us not to be involved in illegal matters and focus on organisation within the party," he said.
Syndicates are promoter-supplier nexus in the building industry in the state.
According to the leader, Banerjee during the closed door meeting has also said that those who worked against the party during the assembly elections should stay away from it.
"She asked us to work keeping in mind the panchayat elections in 2018. Mukul Roy has been asked to sit with the panchayat bodies. All the posts in the districts which are lying vacant should be immediately fulfilled.
"She also said those who are working against the party to serve their own interest have no right to stay in it," another TMC leader said.
Banerjee during the meeting also asked that those in the party involved in smuggling cows to Bangladesh should stay away from the party or quit it.
