‘Left front survives on inaction and reaction'

Staff Reporter

Kolkata: Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee obliquely lashed out here on Thursday at the West Bengal government saying that it survives on “inaction and reaction in the absence of a vision [or] a mission”.

Challenging her opponents to fight against her in a “competitive” manner rather than resorting to “politicising and orchestrating sabotages”, she said that she was ready to face any such contest.

She was speaking at a function to felicitate the medal-winning sportspersons from the State in the Commonwealth Games held recently in New Delhi.

A day before, at the Economic Editors' Conference in New Delhi, Ms. Banerjee had said that there were no technical problems in the Kolkata Metro services and that the recent incidents of disruption in services were the outcome of sabotages.

Human chain

Earlier in the day, Trinamool Congress supporters formed a human chain at the Central Business District of the city to demand the withdrawal of Central forces from the State's Jangalmahal region.

A movement demanding the immediate withdrawal from the region of the Central forces, which are allegedly aiding the CPI(M) to capture villages, was kick-started by Ms. Banerjee last week in the city.

“While Trinamool Congress is the second-largest ally of the United Progressive Alliance government, its forces, along with CPI(M) cadres, are regularly killing supporters of our party in the region. Unless our demands are heeded, we will be forced to take out massive foot-processions to Lalgarh soon,” Madan Mitra, Trinamool MLA, said.
