The organizational district president, Tridib Mondal and others were present at the programme. He handed over the lotus flag to the TMC members including TMC leader Soumendranath Das
Trinamool Congress has been doing corruption at all levels in the area. Regarding repeatedly talking to the senior leadership of the team, there is no benefit. The corruption in the party has resulted in turmoil in the party day after day, said the TMC members.
That is why, in the last panchayat polls, Soumendranath Babu stood as an independent candidate. He defeated the local TMC candidate by more than 100 votes, they added.
