Nanoor, Jul 27 (UNI) Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee today claimed that her party would win all the seats in the forthcoming parliamentary election, reducing the CPI(M)'s strength to zero.

Speaking at Bashapara here to commemorate the murder of eleven farmers which took place at Suchpur in 2001, Ms Banerjee said she would repeat the process in the assembly polls but people would have to wait till 2011, when the polls scheduled, for that.

''I have asked for time much before the rural polls and you have given me. This added to our success in the election,'' she reminded the gathering.

According to her, if the Trinamool Congress comes to power, it would recover the stolen Nobel prize of Rabindranath Tagore from the house of a CPI(M) cadre.

She alleged that the CPI(M), during its partnership with UPA at the Centre, had managed to avert a CBI probe into the matter.

''We will not spare them,'' the Trinamool Congress supremo said.

Speaking on the CPI(M)'s recent move to expel Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee from the party, Ms Banerjee warned the district magistrates and superintendents of police against brokering for the CPI(M) as the party did not blink before throwing out Mr Chatterjee.

Regarding Maoists' presence in West Bengal, Ms Banerjee said, ''There is nothing called Maoists. Had it been so why was the CPI(M) deterring from banning them?'' She said though Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee had admitted in the Assembly that he had read the books of Mao Zedong, the police was arresting the persons in possession of such books.

The Trinamool Congress would observe a hurricane rally all over the state from tomorrow for seven days to protest the power crisis in the state. This apart on August 9, the party would stage 'quit Bengal movement' against the CPI(M).
