'Trinamool Congress leaders who were from day one will stay': Mamata Banerjee

Kolkata/IBNS: Exuding confidence to keep her flock together, West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress supremo, Mamata Banerjee, on Wednesday said her party is united despite a few rebels switching sides.

At a rally in Cooch Behar, Banerjee said, "The Trinamool leaders who were from day one will remain till the end. One or two leaders, who had come to the party in the wave, will leave."

"All should remember that ideologies can never be changed," she added.

Banerjee's comment came days after her party MLA from Cooch Behar Dakshin, Mihir Goswami, joined the BJP.

Besides Goswami, several reports claimed Trinamool rebel MLA Suvendu Adhikari is likely to join the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Dec 19.

Banerjee sent out a strong message to the rebels on Tuesday saying, "The Trinamool Congress' pledge is to work for people. There is no one superior or inferior in the party. I won't tolerate leaders, who after remaining in the party and the government for 10 years, are now hobnobbing with other parties."
