SONAMUKHI: Sharpening her attack against the Congress at the time when party's Vice President Rahul Gandhi was electioneering in West Bengal, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today likened Congress to a "creeper" trying to survive banking on others.

"The national party Congress has turned into creeper and is now trying to survive banking on strength of others. Not surprisingly, the Congress is now breaking into pieces because of its wrong policy and for having no ideology," Banerjee said addressing an election rally here in Bankura district.

Reiterating her attack against the CPI(M)-Congress alliance, Banerjee said both the parties are devoid of ideology.

"Both CPI(M) and Congress have no ideology. Nature of the CPI(M) will never change. Main agenda of the alliance is to spread canard and slander against the Trinamool Congress," Banerjee said.

Without naming the Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, who is now electioneering in the state in support of the CPI(M)-Congress alliance, the TMC supremo said, "Some leaders from Delhi suddenly surface here during any election, make unrestrained statements and disappear all of a sudden.

"Don't believe them. They don't love this state. They have deprived West Bengal always," she said.

Speaking about the CPI(M), she said that the erstwhile Left Front government did nothing in 34 years and compared to their activities, performance of her government deserved wide appreciation.

Listing a series of development works in the state by her government during last five years, Banerjee said, "Our government is a government of common people and thus we will never do anything which could become a burden on people."

Banerjee urged people to reject the CPI(M)-Congress alliance and re-elect her party to form a government which would serve their purpose.
