Kolkata, Oct 1: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today (Oct 1) asked industrialists not to pay bribe to any one while setting up units in the state and asked the police to take proper steps in this regard.

In a message to the industrialists keen to set up units in the state, the chief minister said, "Please do inform us if there is any claim for bribe and convey the same to the minister concerned and your identity will be kept a secret for the police to take appropriate action."

Launching a website of the West Bengal Industrial Development Corporation (WBIDC), the nodal agency for industrial development, the Chief Minister called for improving infrastructure prerequisite for industrial development in the state.

The Chief Minister said that festive season would begin from Sunday and called for ensuring that peace was maintained at all costs.

"Our state has a rich heritage of having communal amity which has to be maintained at all costs," she said.

Banerjee warned of stern steps against any bid to create communal passion and said "don't try to mix politics with religion and force the government to take legal action".
