SONAMUKHI: The CPI-M today said Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was attacking the Left-Congress combine because she was "scared" of the "people's alliance".

"She is scared. She realised that people are deserting her. That is why she is attacking our alliance, which is a people's alliance," CPI-M state secretary Surjya Kanta Mishra told an election meeting here.

On Banerjee's comment that the Congress and the Left have formed an "unprincipled" alliance, he said, "Do we have to learn ideology and principle from her? What principle she has? She had switched alliance with the BJP and the Congress again and again".

He also alleged that now she had "backroom understanding" with the BJP.

Claiming that democracy in the state had been "throttled", the CPI-M politburo member said she had asked us to keep our mouth shut for 10 years, but "we will raise our voice. She can't stop it".

On her statement that Congress-Left have formed a "rainbow alliance", he said such an alliance had been formed by her in the 2011 Assembly election, but none of those parties was with the TMC this time.
