KOLKATA: Demanding action against Union Minister Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti for her controversial remarks, CPI(M) Politburo member Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee on Friday said his party will not go with the Trinamool Congress in any joint programme on the issue.

"Action must be taken against the Minister for her remarks. The opposition has rightly raised the demand. Our party is consistently demanding the resignation of the Minister.

"But, we will not go for a joint programme with the Trinamool Congress. TMC has no credibility in the fight against communalism. Strict action against Tapas Paul also needs to be taken," Bhattacharjee, former West Bengal Chief

Minister said in a statement issued on Friday.

Jyoti had stoked controversy by allegedly using expletives in an election rally in Delhi on December 2.
