Kolkata, May 22 (UNI) Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee today said the wind of change had started blowing in West Bengal and it would take another two years to topple the Left Front government from power.
''It's just the beginning of the end of CPI(M)-led LF rule in West Bengal and the government will be toppled from power within two years from now. The CPI(M) should take a lesson from Nandigram and Singur Panchayat results and stop the violence, unleashed by them, immediately,'' Ms Banerjee told newspersons here.
She said ''The people in general do not like the CPI(M) and a major chunk of people believing in Left ideology have cast their votes this time in favour of the Trinamool Congress.'' ''We are not against industrialisation and have no objection to the Tata's small car factory at Singur, but there is no need of 1000 acre of land for Tata Motors. Tata should return 400 acre of land to the unwilling farmers of Singur, which has been our long pending demand, '' she underlined.
''If we can take over the Panchayat, our first priority will be to create transparency, a domocratic atmosphere and run the Panchayat smoothly,'' she opined.
She also said, ''The Trinamool Congress does not believe in changing the land's character,'' and stressed on the need for land bank and land map in the state to idenfity the agricultural and non-agricultural land.
Congratulating the people, Ms Banerjee said, ''We could have won more seats, had the CPI(M) resorted to terror in several areas, and asserted that bloody politics taken resourse to by the ruling party could never muffle democracy.'' UNI AKM SJC ATI CS2055
