Kolkata: Facing heat from several parties
especially from the CPI(M) for devoting more time in
campaigning for Kolkata civic polls, Railway Minister and TC
chief Mamata Banerjee today hit back at the left party saying
she was not answerable to it.

"I am being continuously criticised why I am here... away
from the national capital. But, I would like to make it clear
that I am not supposed to answer the CPI(M). I will do my work
here as it is my home," Banerjee told a civic poll rally here.

"Delhi is not my home. When there is no Parliament, why
should I stay in Delhi? Kolkata is my home."

Stating that she did not need certificates from the
CPI(M), she said, "I don`t care for criticism by marxists."

The CPI(M) had attacked Banerjee for spending more time
in Kolkata than in Delhi and charged her with neglecting her
duty as the Railway minister following Sunday`s stampede at
New Delhi Railway Station, which left three persons dead.
