Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister
Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee on Saturday censured veteran CPI(M) leader

Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee at an election
meeting and asked him to be cautious in the future.
Expressing displeasure over the use of such language
by Basu at Arambagh yesterday, Bhattacharjee said in a
statement "use of such words is unpardonable and unbecoming of
a communist leader".
The chief minister said he had asked the party to warn
The former CPI(M) MP, who has won the Arambagh seat
for seven time in a row in the past and recorded highest
margin in the state in a Lok Sabha election, had allegedly
hurled abuses against the Trinamool chief in the presence of
senior local party leaders.
The Trinamool Congress demanded stern action by the
Election Commission against Basu, a former MP.
"We are moving the EC for taking stern against Anil
Basu under the law," Leader of the Opposition in Assembly
Partha Chatterjee said.
