Stern action against those found indulging in infighting: Abhishek
Cooch Behar: Abhishek Banerjee, the All India Trinamool Youth Congress president and party's MP, has warned workers against infighting and said that no one will be spared if found guilty.
Addressing a gathering at Rashmela Maidan in connection with the upcoming Brigade Parade Ground Rally scheduled to be held on January 19, he said: "Some workers are trying to weaken the party by creating division along lines of superiority. The party can be strengthened only by the old and new members working hand-in-hand. There should be complete unity in the party."
He also added that those who are minting money using the party as a façade have no place there. "The party has not learnt to lower its head and will take stern action against those who are found guilty," he added.
It may be mentioned that fights between the older and newer generation of the Trinamool Congress members have become frequent in the districts in recent times.
Recently, Nisith Pramanick, district secretary of the Cooch Behar unit of the Trinamool Youth Congress, was expelled from the party.
It may be recalled that Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee in the party meeting held in Kolkata after Durga Puja had urged party leaders to give up infighting and work together for the development of the state.
On Tuesday, Abhishek offered prayers at the house of Madanmohan before attending the meeting. He reiterated that the party workers should not forget the main organisation. He also urged all the leaders and workers to work together and obey the instructions of the party.
Coming down heavily on the BJP, he said the "communal demons should be ousted not only from Cooch Behar but from Bengal." He added that the BJP had failed to keep promises in the past five years.
In 2014, people had voted for the party but in the past five years, they have received nothing. He said the BJP has spent Rs 5,278 crore and another Rs 3,000 crore to install the statue of Sardar Patel and another Rs 2,000 crore on foreign trips of the Prime Minister.
He also urged the Trinamool workers to fulfill the target set by Mamata Banerjee to win 42 out of 42 Lok Sabha seats.
Trinamool Congress district president and state North Bengal Development minister Rabindranath Ghosh presided over the meeting. The MLAs of the district and MP from Jalpaiguri Bijay Chandra Barman were also present.
