West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday (December 4) issued a stern warning against "anti-party activities" and said TMC leaders in touch with the opposition are free to quit the ruling party in the state.

Mamata Banerjee said, “Anti-party activities will not be tolerated and those in touch with the opposition camp are free to leave the party.”

Sending a strong message to a section of the party leaders who have been vocal against the leadership and the government, Banerjee said during the video conference with the TMC leaders that those speaking against the party are free to leave rather than "weakening it from inside".

The rift between the TMC and Suvendu Adhikari widened on Thursday (December 3), with the party describing the rapprochement efforts as a "closed chapter" and the disgruntled leader taking potshots at its top brass.

During the four-hour-long party meeting which began at 2 pm on Friday, Banerjee spoke about how the TMC was built from scratch in 1998 and narrated the initial days of struggle.

During the outreach programme, which will be conducted from December 11 to 24, party leaders and cadre will reach out to the people in every nook and corner of the state.
