Kolkata, Nov 12: Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee today said she had informed the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) about the "anarchy-like" situation in Nandigram and pledged her support to tomorrow's bandh, called by the Congress, SUCI and the BJP. Talking to newsmen at Tamluk in East Midnapore, where she had been camping on her way to Nandigram, Ms Banerjee said, " Tomorrow an NDA team under Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha L K Advani is supposed to go to strife-torn Nandigram. " " I have sent a request to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, presently in Moscow, and Congress president Sonia Gandhi to come and see the silent sufferings of the people in Nandigram, " she added.

Demanding the sacking of the Left Front government for the "state-sponsored" terrorism, Ms Banerjee iterated that Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee had lost all rights to remain in the saddle and the people were running out of patience.

" I know that Mr Bhattacharjee is continuing under political compulsion, but the compulsion should never be at the cost of human lives, " she asserted.

Reiterating of not calling a bandh tomorrow, she said, " We have called 'Bangla Achal' (Paralyse the state), equivalent to non-cooperation to the government, but we are cooperating whole heartedly with the people. " The Trinamool Congress supremo asserted that she would join the "Mahamichil" (Great Rally) to be organised by the intellectuals on November 14 highlighting tha cause of Nandigram.

" I have also requested my party workeres to maintain peace while observing our programme, " she said and further alleged that the CRPF and the media persons were prevented from entering Nandigram because the CPI (M) cadres were busy removing the arms and the dead bodies.

Saluting the people of Nandigram, she recounted the historical significance of Nandigram under Mahishadal sub-division, which was one of the three places after Satara and Balia from where the independent India 's flag was hoisted even before the Independence.
