Kolkata: Union Home Minister P Chidambaram
on Saturday night said that violence in West Bengal must stop and that
the Centre would act in its own way and time, according to
Trinamool Congress leader Saugata Roy.

"He (Chidambaram) told us that violence must stop and
Centre will act in its own way and own time. He is keeping a
tab on what is happening in West Bengal and asked us how many
Trinamool Congress workers had been killed in the last three
months," Roy, Union minister of state for Urban Development,
told agency.
"We informed him that 83 people died during the period,"
Roy who was part of an 11-member joint delegation of allies
Trinamool Congress and Congress to meet Chidambaram at Raj
Bhavan here said.

He said Chidambaram clarified that he could not make it
to Mangalkot in Burdwan district as scheduled due to loss of
time in returning from Arunachal Pradesh because of inclement
weather there.

"He will visit Mangalkot and other areas of the state
later," Roy said.
The joint delegation pleaded for central steps to end
"CPI(M) misrule and atrocities" in accordance with
constitutional means.

"We believe that the Centre is concerned and aware of
the situation prevailing in Left Front-ruled West Bengal,"
Trinamool Congress Chief Whip in the Lok Sabha Sudip
Bandopadhyay said.
