This incident has sent shockwaves in the party of the state unit prompting them to take action against the leaders who have broken the discipline of the party creating a bad image, sources informed.
Meanwhile, after receiving the letter from MLA Bhattacharya, Bhabesh Kalita said that from now on the background and profile will be checked before inducting them in the party.
