Kolkata, Sep 06 (UNI) Information and Broadcasting Minister Priya Ranjan Dasmunshi today alleged that Governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi did not maintain ''democratic process" regarding talks on Singur without calling the Congress into the discussion table.

'' The Congress was involved from the beginning in the Singur movement and our party's strength stands a few less than that of the Opposition Trinamool Congress in the Assembly. So, it was necessary for the Governor to invite the Congress to the discussion table for sorting out the problems,'' Mr Dasmunshi, also the State Congress president, told newspersons here.

'' The Congress is keeping close watch on the Singur imbroglio and the problem can be sorted out if the government provides land against land, sufficient compensations and rehabilitation packages for the farmers,'' he said.

The Congress would organise movement against the Left Front government's failure in all fronts after Durgapuja throughout the state and instructions had been sent to all the district leaders in this regard, he said.

Mr Dasmunshi informed that the Pradesh Congress executive committee has been formed nominating himself as president and Mr Pradip Bhattacharjee and Mr Subratra Mukherjee as the working presidents.

Ten vice-presidents, one treasurer, eleven general secretaries, twentytwo secretaries, fortyone executive members and fourteen permanent invitees had been selected in the committee, he added.
