New Delhi, Sept 28: The Congress is likely to take legal action against West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for mimicking Prime Minister Manmohan Singh while giving an interview to an English news channel on Wednesday.

The Trinamool Congress leader said that the Congress or the UPA government headed by it did not care to contact her while taking a decision on FDI in retail and increasing the diesel price and they were the two main reasons which had compelled her to pull out of the UPA government.

Mimicking Singh, Mamata said when the coordination meeting started, the Prime Minister said, "We have the problemmm... this and thiiis... we have to think over then we'll discuss...."

She said the PM was behaving in a 'goody goody' manner in the meeting.

Congress MP Deepa Das Munshi said the party might take a legal action against the Trinamool chief for mimicking the Prime Minister.

Banerjee also took a dig at Singh, saying the latter was not a 'grassroots leader' for he was not a part of the Lok Sabha, the member of which are popularly elected. She said her party tried its best to support the government and help it complete the full term but it was getting difficult for her to remain silent always.

She slammed the Congress, saying the latter was using money, muscle and mafia power to remain in power. She also alleged that her party MPs were being brought under the income tax department's scanner.
