State Congress President Adhir Chowdhury accused Bhuniyaof working on the behalf of TMC and said the party would nottolerate such indiscipline. "He is working on behalf of Trinamool Congress as anagent of TMC in lieu of ‘supari’. We will not tolerateindiscipline. Nobody should take Congress for granted,"Chowdhury said. "Today in the meeting of Congress MLAs, a unanimousdecision was taken to send a proposal to AICC requesting themto take disciplinary action and suspend Manas Bhuniya as hehas indulged in anti-party activities, disrespecting the stateleadership and the decisions taken by the party," Leader ofOpposition in the Assembly Abdul Mannan told PTI. "The MLAs had appealed him to resign from the post ofPAC chairman but he didn’t. He was even show-caused. He hascrossed his limits," the senior Congress leader said. Mannan said it was also decided that Bhuniya would beboycotted by Congress MLAs. Reacting to the decision, Bhuniya said both Mannan andChowdhury were deliberately insulting him. "They are deliberately insulting me. I haven’t receivedany letter of suspension. Let me get it first, then I willdecide my future course of action," Bhuniya said. He had boycotted today’s Congress Legislature Partymeeting. The development came a day after Bhuniya’s youngerbrother and West Midnapore district Congress president Bikasalong with several Congress, joined the TMC. Manas Bhuniya had been show caused by Congress forrefusing to step down from the post of the chairman of thePublic Accounts Committee despite repeated requests by partyleaders. Thirty-nine party MLAs had jointly appealed Bhuniya toresign from that post. Congress wanted to give the PAC chairman’s post to theCPI(M), with which it had jointly contested the West BengalAssembly elections earlier this year. PTI PNT DKBAAR
