West Bengal Chief Minister, Mamata Banerjee on Friday took stock of her party’s organizational limitations in Hooghly district, where it was defeated in the Lok Sabha election.
She warned the party workers against infighting while urging the "traitors" to leave the party rather than weakening it from inside.
She reportedly held a two-hour-long closed-door meeting with the district unit leaders, after its defeat in the Hooghly Lok Sabha seat to the BJP and just managed to scrape through in Arambagh with a margin of 1,000 votes. In several assembly segments of the district, the BJP has taken a lead over the TMC in the general election.
She told the party workers to prepare for 2021 assembly polls and expressed confidence that the party would bounce back.
She also told the workers to reach out to the masses and increase connect with them and also to bring back the old-timers to the party fold.
Banerjee also suggested small meetings and gatherings in areas where the party was defeated and directed the leaders to submit reports on the grievances of the masses.
