Kolkata, May 26 (UNI) Left Front Chairman Biman Bose today attributed the dismal performance of the Front in the recently concluded Panchayat election to disunity among the constituents over seat sharing and ruled out any cap on industrialisation in the state.
'' We will not roll back on our industrialisation process and the land, acquired for this purpose, will be utilised for industry, '' Mr Bose, also CPI(M) State Secretary, told newspersons after the two-day state committee meeting here.
'' We have made a preliminary review on the Panchayat election results and asked all the district committees to end the review within the first week of July, '' he said.
'' We have also failed to properly campaign about the LF's industrialisation policy throughout the state and could not reach people to make them aware of the continuous miscampaign resorted to by the Opposition pertaining to our land acquisition policy, '' Mr Bose asserted.
He admitted that disunity over seat sharing among the Front partners had severely jolted the Front in the Panchayat election.
'' If we have a unity in seat sharing and could make people aware of the Opposition miscampaign, we could not have received such a setback, '' he averred.
The party felt that it needed to close relation with the people and if there was any administrative mistake, it should be rectified immediately, he said.
The party was also opposed to the separation of Darjeeling and would carry on its campaign in favour of the peace, development and democracy in the area, he said.
'' We are urging all political parties to maintain peace throughout the state, '' he said.
A 15-member new State Secretariat Committee had been elected.
The elected members were Mr Jyoti Basu, Mr Biman Bose, Mr Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee, Mr Nirupam Sen, Mr Binoy Konar, Mr Shyamal Chakrabaorty, Mr Surya Kanta Mishra, Mr Madan Ghosh, Mr Goutam Deb, Mr Mridul De, Mr Dipak Dasgupta, Mr Amitava Basu, Mr Raghunath Kushari, Mr Subhas Chakraborty and Md Salim.
The Left Front meeting would take place tomorrow.
