Kolkata, May 4 (UNI) West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee today said US President George Bush had gone out of his mind in ascribing current food crisis to middle class Indians.
Mr Bhattacharjee wondered how Mr Bush could have uttered such words blaming the Indians for global food crisis.
The Leftist chief minister told a local TV channel that Bush's remarks on the Indian middle class as being responsible for the worldwide inflation and shortage in food supply was ridiculous.
On the other hand, Mr Bhattacharjee, a CPI(M) Polit Bureau member, blamed the US for famine and starvation across the world.
He said the US was now going through a crisis, which led Mr Bush to lose his senses.
Indian media today published front page coverage of Mr Bush's statement against the Indian middle class of having triggered a global food crisis. The US president said that this at an interactive session on economy in Missouri.
