In her strongest ever missive to party workers, chief minister Mamata Banerjee said on Friday that anyone stalling development work, including those by her government, would be thrown out of the party. The stern warning comes within 48 hours of the chief minister extending an olive branch to industry from the Singur stage.
Asking “smug“ leaders to mend their ways and errant party workers to fall in line, Mamata said: “Kono gondogol bordasto korbe na dol, kono project e haath dile dol theke bar kore dewa hobe (the party will not tolerate any trouble; any interference in projects will lead to expulsion from the party).“ She was addressing members of the Trinamool Congress’ decision-making bo dy at her residence on Friday .Last Monday , she had met all party MLAs so that the same message percolates down to the grassroots.
According to senior leaders, the CM has received repeated complaints of partymen “interfering“ in key projects, including the 34 multi superspecialty hospitals, leading to time and cost overrun.
