Aarambagh: Disgruntled Trinamool
Congress leaders snatched the microphone from the hands of
West Bengal Industry Minister Partha Chatterjee when he rose
to speak at a function here on Sunday.

Chatterjee, a prominent TMC leader, rose from his chair
to address the gathering at a Panchayati Raj Sammelan here, in
Hooghly district, when local leaders climbed onto the stage,
took away the microphone and started addressing themselves.

They claimed that they were being cold-shouldered by the
party leadership.

"Those who have been in the party since 1998 are being
ignored by the party. We have no space in the party," said
Samir Bhandari, a local TMC leader.

A rattled Chatterjee then pacified the protesters arguing
this was not the right forum to speak on the topic.

Some other party workers were also seen protesting
outside the venue.
