It may be recalled that this is not the first time when the four leaders were been asked to stop fighting among themselves as it is leading to loss of the party besides causing trouble to the common people. On June 18, in a workshop of Trinamool Congress, the Trinamool Congress supremo had taken names of the four leaders along with some others from North Bengal as their infighting had led to loss of some seats. Stating that she would not tolerate two-three factions in her party, she had directed to reframe from infighting.

She further said that projects for widening of highways and construction of flyovers in the district have been taken up. Bus terminus is coming up in Bongaon. She has also directed the senior police officers to ensure that smuggling of cow across the border in Bongaon shouldn’t take place.
