KUMARGANJ: Facing Opposition heat over Narada sting operation, Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee today said she will not tolerate people who only "care about personal interests" in her party.

"TMC will not tolerate those who only care about personal interests. We don't have room for traitors in our party," Banerjee told at an election rally at Safanagar here.

"CPI(M) has ruined Bengal for 34 years. They intimidated farmers, looted their land and even opened fire on them. Again they are saying if they return to power, they will spill blood. But, they will never win again," the West Bengal Chief Minister said.

Taking potshots at the Left Front-Congress alliance, she said, "Both Congress and CPI(M) leaders are busy arguing among themselves sitting in television studios. They are not on the field. I have personally toured the districts and reviewed the projects a number of times."

"In a never-before move, I had brought the entire state secretariat to the districts," Banerjee said at the rally.

The TMC chief also addressed two other rallies in South Dinajpur district in support of party candidates, one at Gangarampur and the other at Khagra Kudi in Kushmandi. She briefly felt uncomfortable after drinking water at Kushmandi rally, but recovered soon.
