Amid Poor Performance in Lok Sabha Polls, Mamata Asks TMC MLAs to Apologise to People for Past Mistakes
Banerjee held a meeting with her party MLAs during the day — her first since the Lok Sabha polls which saw the BJP snatching away 18 of the 42 seats in the state, just four less than the TMC.
"Our party supremo has asked all MLAs to be more humble and reach out to the masses.
She has also asked us that if needed the MLAs should apologize for their mistakes committed in the past," a TMC MLA said.
According to TMC sources, Banerjee admonished some of the senior MLAs for making statements which did not go down well with the people during the Lok Sabha polls.
The TMC supremo accused a few leaders of not working properly in their areas and for being "keen on taking illegal commission" (cut money) from people to provide benefits under government schemes.
