MALDA: West Bengal Congress chief Adhir Chowdhury today accused Trinamool supremo Mamata Banerjee of leading a party of "thieves" and urged people to reject her and the ruling dispensation in the ongoing Assembly elections in the state.

Addressing a rally in support of Congress and Left Front alliance candidate Sabina Yasmin from Muthabari Assembly constituency, Chowdhury said voting for TMC would tantamount to humiliating the contributions of legendary Congress leader from Malda, late ABA Gani Khan Chowdhry.

"The Chief Minister of Bengal and Trinamool supremo Mamata Banerjee in a recent rally in Malda has called upon the people to vote for her party. We urge you all to reject that call. She has lost the right to seek votes from people as she is leading a party of thieves," he said.

"Voting for TMC will mean rejection and humiliation towards the contributions made by the legendary Barkat'da (Gani Khan Chowdhury)," the state Congress president said.

The Congress Lok Sabha MP from Berhampore also claimed that Trinamool would fare badly in the first round of polls held in the Jungelmahal area of West Bengal.
