Message to teachers: West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee addressing a rally of Left-backed teachers, who put in an impressive performance in elections to the District Primary Education Councils, in Kolkata on Wednesday.
KOLKATA: After the spectacular victory of Left-backed candidates in the recent District Primary Education Council elections, West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee on Wednesday urged teachers to make known to all sections alleged misdeeds committed by the Trinamool Congress.
“You know who is creating an atmosphere of terror in the State…who wants the Maoist presence spread across the State, and unrest to prevail everywhere. You must take your beliefs to the people,” he told the teachers here.
Just as they had convinced primary teachers who was posing a threat to the State and the education system here, they now had the greater responsibility of reaching the message to the thousands of parents who came to the schools.
Mr. Bhattacharjee was speaking at a rally to celebrate the victory of the Left-backed teachers' organisations in all districts.
Biman Bose, chairman of the State Left Front Committee, reiterating the charge that Trinamool chief Mamata Banerjee was spreading false propaganda, cited the example of her promising the electorate many times that early elections would be held in the State.
“In July, she said that elections will be held in October. In November, she said that the matter will be in the hands of the Election Commission after December 11. After December 11 has passed, they are now saying that the State is running as if under martial law,” he said.
Mr. Bhattacharjee reiterated that the Trinamool was indulging in obstructionist politics and hindering the State's economic policy by not allowing roads, industry, electricity or towns to come up.
“We know of the difficult situation you faced during these elections. In many districts there were attempts to create an atmosphere of terror so that the Left-backed organisations are not able to win.”
The Trinamool even forced a Left-backed candidate in Purbo Medinipur district to withdraw his nomination. “The campaign they carried out — hitting the streets with festoons and posters — was on the scale of an Assembly election,” the Chief Minister said.
