34yrs of CPM terror forces Bengal backward: Pranab


Pranab Mukherjee
Kolkata, Dec 27: Citing the continuous unrest in the state, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee blamed the CM Buddhadev Bhattacharya for the CPM "terror" and "jungle raj" in West Bengal. Mukherjee also claimed that CMP's reign in the state for the last 34 years forced Bengal backward.

"What kind of jungle rule one is living in here? Government's first duty is to protect people and if that is not kept, what is the meaning of a government? In whole West Bengal this situation prevails," claimed Mr Mukherjee while attending a meeting in the state on Dec 26.

Confirming about Union Home Minister P Chidambaram's letter to the state government, Pranab stated, "The Home Minister has written to the state government."

He also added, "He (Chidambaram) has fulfilled his responsibility. Now the state government should fulfill its responsibility and reply by acknowledging receipt of the letter."

On the other side, CPI-M state secretary Biman Bose still rejected the news that the state government has received Chidambaram's letter which reportedly asked government to disarm CPI-M cadres in the state.

Trinamool Congress earlier claimed that since CPI-M policy was to depend on lies, murder and terror, it is least expected that they would acknowledge the receipt of the letter.

"We are keeping a watch on the situation and will form our opinion after a discussion within the party," Trinamool Congress spokesperson stated earlier.
