Kolkata, Dec 6(UNI) Accusing the Congress of having trucks with the Maoists, West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee today alleged that the opposition parties were creating a crisis over the Nandigram issue in the state.

'' The Maoists on one side, the Trinamool Congress and the BJP on the other--you are moving with them...this is your role. I have informed Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Home Minister Shivraj Patil everything,'' he said in the Assembly.

In response to a debate on an adjournment motion, moved by the Trinamool Congress and Congress on the Nandigram issue, the Chief Minister said it was the opposition parties which persisted with ''creating trouble'' in Nandigram despite the fact that the government had declared long ago that there would be no chemical hub.

'' It was in February last that I said no chemical hub would be set up in Nandigram. But even after that violence continued and a police officer, Sadhu Chattopadhyay, was killed--is it constitutional? It is you who are creating crisis there,'' he said.

Earlier, Leader of the Congress Legislature Party Manas Bhunia and senior Trinamool Congress member Saugata Ray alleged that the democratic and constitional right of the people had been trampled in Nandigram where a number of people were killed and many women raped during an armed takeover of the area by CPI(M) supporters during November 5 and 14.

They alleged that police had been kept inactive while the statement of the Chief Minister on the incident was condemnable.
