Banerjee today presided over an organisational assessment meeting of Kolkata district, which was attended by senior party leaders, MPs, MLAs and councillors.
"Mamatadi emphasised all the party leaders should go to the masses in their respective areas and talk about the pro-people policies that we have pursued in last four and half years," the leader added.
Banerjee further asked some of the MLAs from Kolkata to stay away from infighting and work unitedly with the councillors, the source said.
"Mamatadi asked us to work hard so that we could win all seats in Kolkata district," the leader added.
The West Bengal Congress had yesterday hailed the decision of CPI(M) seeking cooperation from all democratic forces by stating that every secular party in the state should respect the aspirations of the masses.
The CPI(M) Central Committee, after its two-day meeting, in a statement said, "In West Bengal, the main task is to restore democracy and foil the aggressive efforts by the communal forces to polarise the people by ousting the present Trinamool Congress government..."
