Kolkata, Nov 2: Reacting to CPI-M allegations of her party of having link with the Maoists, Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee has said that Maoists and the Marxists are both two sides of the same coin.
Addressing a press conference here on Sunday evening, Nov 1, Banerjee said, "I think that the Marxists and the Maoists are both sides of the same coin. They are working together."
She called West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee "both a Marxist and Maoist with a double face".
She also accused of him of not helping two state policemen who have been missing since Jul 30 and are believed to have been kidnapped by Maoists.
"The Union Home Minister had said that the Centre is willing to help in the search of these two policemen. I want to know why they are not being looked for even after this. Does not the Chief Minister have the responsibility to look for them?" she said.
Earlier on Friday, Oct 30, Bhattacherjee alleged the Trinamool Congress was conspiring with Maoist rebels to dislodge his government.
