Janata Dal(United) leader says people of Bengal need alternative

Written by: Staff

Barrackpore, Apr 18 (UNI) Janata Dal (United) leader Digvijay Narayan Singh said today people of West Bengal were frustrated with the 29-year old Left Front government and needed an alternative.

He alleged that the Marxists have threatened the voters in many areas to vote in their favour.

Addressing a Trinamul Congress rally at Waihati during his election campaign for the All India Trinamool Congress-BJP alliance, Mr Singh said, ''Bengal needs a substitute to the Left Front to see a better and developed state for the interest of the future generation,''.

The former minister of state for Railway also ridiculed the Manmohan Singh-led UPA government partnering the CPI(M), saying that the UPA government hardly did anything for the poor.

''The Congress-CPI(M) have now established a 'husband-wife' relation at the Centre,'' Mr Singh added.

He alleged that the CPI(M) here had failed to fulfill the aspiration of the majority of people as far as development was concerned and now started depending on the capitalists, giving away its socialists' policy. ''Like Manmohan Singh's government, they too started depending on America, inviting foreign direct investment to set up industrial units,'' Mr Singh asserted.

He urged the people of Bengal to courageously exercise their franchise in the elections as the Election Commission had taken all measures to ensure fair elections.
