Talking abouut th opposition, Mr Bhattacharjee said, ''Their seats have reduced. we have no hand in it. But there is always a role for a good opposition if they criticise constructively and bring out our faults.'' Asked about the party's relation with the Centre, he said, ''We don't invite confrontation. We support them on policies, but we cant support them on policies of hire and fire or privatising of the navratnas.'' UNI BA SJC MIR PC2041
