Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee on Friday claimed she has information that a political party in Delhi had held a meeting to advance the Lok Sabha polls to 2013 and asked her partymen to be ready for it.
"Anyday, we can face election. We have to remain ready," she said.
"One party has held a meeting to hold the election in advance, though my information may not be correct," Banerjee told a meeting of Trinamool Congress without naming the party.
"I have got the information. I am not going into details as to who were at the meeting. They deliberated on advancing the Lok Sabha election to 2013," she said.
Banerjee turned to her close aide and railway minister and said "what Mukul? Wasn't the the meeting held?
Subrata Baksi, MP, was re-elected as the state president of Trinamool Congress at the meeting.
Asking her partymen to behave, she said "we are in the government. We should not do anything so that people misunderstand us."
Warning her partymen not to indulge in groupism, she said if any MLA or MP does not take care of the people "we do not require them."
