The CPM-led Opposition in West Bengal has flayed Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s recent remark on an alleged “Congress-BJP-CPM” syndicate in the state and instead put a question mark over the Trinamool Congress(TMC) chief’s state of mind and her agenda.
West Bengal INTUC chief and Congress Rajya Sabha MP Pradip Bhattacharya said,“She is of unstable mind and alwayshas been talking nonsense. She has now realised that she stood exposed before the people with her false and tall promises, which she could not deliver. She is trying to woo the Muslim voters though she had done nothing for the development of either the Muslims or even the Hindus.”
He pointed out that Mamata was now talking about the BJP being a party, which had triggered communal riots.
“It was she who had joined hands with the BJP and was part of the NDA Government. With her false promises, she is again trying to dupe the people here,” Bhattacharya said. State BJP general secretary and party nominee for the Basirhat Lok Sabha seat, Shamik Bhattacharya said, “She is indulging in divisive politics by playing her favourite minority card. She has become jittery witnessing the BJP wave not only in the entire country but also in West Bengal as she has realised the fact that people here are disgusted with her non-performance.” “Mamata is now alone in her single party Federal Front, about which she is still day dreaming. This time she will not succeed in her attempts to befool the people,” he added. CPM Politburo member and Leader of Opposition Surya Kanta Mishra said,”The BJP never had any footing here. It was her activities which provided strength to the BJP in West Bengal.
“She has displayed her penchant for people with communal leanings by nominating Indira Tewari, who had links with the VHP, as the candidate in Varanasi.”
CPM State Secretariat member and party nominee from Jadavpur Lok Sabha seat Sujon Chakraborty said: “She is becoming a laughing stock by saying such absurd things.”
