Banerjee summoned important leaders from the district at her Kalighat residence this morning. A Trinamool leader said the chief minister has stressed on maintaining unity in the party.
Her instruction came after factional feud in Trinamool embarrassed her. The chief minister reportedly told her party colleagues that a trend to violate law was witnessed. She asked all her party leaders to refrain from indulging in any unlawful activities.

She asked the zila parishad leaders to personally visit their constituencies and monitor the development works.
"The chief minister said that she knew all the blocks of South 24-Parganas, which is her home district. If she gets any negative news regarding a leader, she will take stern action," a leader who attended the meeting said.
