Kolkata: Trinamool Congress MP and Mamata Banerjee's nephew Abhishek Banerjee on Thursday warned that indiscipline among partymen would not be tolerated and said it would even lead to expulsion.

Abhishek, who was recently asked by Mamata to shoulder greater responsibility in party affairs, was alluding to expulsion of strongman and party's South 24-Parganas district leader Arabul Islam two days back.

"Action will be taken against those who violate the discipline within the party and bring shame to the party," Abhishek, who was recently made head of the TMC's youth wing, said at the first meeting of the restructured TMC youth Congress state committee and district presidents.

Abhishek, one of the youngest MPs of the party, later told PTI that at today's meeting he had also said that those who would get involved in 'immoral' and 'bad' acts would be expelled from the party.

He said that party chief Mamata Banerjee had made a lot of sacrifices in building the party and no one would be allowed to tarnish the party's image.

"For an individual, the party's image cannot suffer," he said.

Abhishek said the party's youth wing will observe Sahmati Divas (Communal Harmony Day) on December 6 near Gandhi statue on Mayo Road in the city.
