Kolkata: Rashtriya Janta Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad on Thursday described West Bengal as an "university of Maoist activities" where the ultras get training and launch armed strikes in other parts of the country.
"West Bengal is a university of Maoist activities. Here the Left wing rebels get arms training," he told reporters at a brief interaction in Kolkata. The RJD supremo was in the West Bengal capital to attend a public programme.
"The Maoists get training in this state and they launch attacks in other states," he said.
The former railways minister declined to comment when asked about the performance of his successor Mamata Banerjee.
"I have no reaction to the issue. People will decide how she (Mamata Banerjee) is performing," he said.
