Yechury hits out at TC over Central team`s visit to WB
New Delhi: Taking a dig at the Trinamool
Congress leadership over sending of a Central team to West
Bengal, CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechury on Tuesday said they needed
to "brush up" their English as they found no difference
between the words "assist" and "assess".
While TC leaders were saying that the team had gone to
"assess" the law and order situation as "a prelude to their
designs" for imposition of President`s Rule, Home Minister P
Chidambaram made it clear that the team has gone to "assist
the state government", Yechury said.
"They need to brush up their English. The Home Minister`s
clarifications are at complete variance with what was being
sought by the Trinamool," the CPI(M) leader said.
He alleged the Trinamool`s "political objective" was to
create violence and mayhem and use it as a pretext to get
Central rule imposed and then hold the assembly polls, slated
in 2011. "This gameplan has now been completely punctured".
TC has been demanding President`s Rule in West Bengal
alleging that law and order has collapsed in the state.
Yechury said Chidambaram has made it clear in Parliament
that the Centre had adopted a "non-confrontation" approach in
sending the team, which had gone to hold consultations with
The Home Minister, he said, also clarified that the team
of Central officials would visit any affected area only if the
state government suggests so and facilitates their visit.
