Howrah (WB): Three senior BJP leaders had to abandon their plan of campaigning in West Bengal as the administration did not not cooperate with the party on the use of choppers, Leader of the Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj alleged here on Sunday.

"The administration was not cooperating with the party on the use of helicopter. It led to cancellation of campaign meetings of three leaders. The Left Front government do not want campaigning by senior BJP leaders," Swaraj told an election rally at Raghudebbati in Howrah district.

She, however, did not elaborate on the name of the three leaders or the nature of the 'non-cooperation'.

The Left Front had won seven times in a row in the state but it did not advance seven steps so far as development was concerned, Swaraj, a senior BJP leader, said.

Criticising Trinamool Congress chief and Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee, Swaraj said Banerjee would have to share responsibility of various policies of the UPA government which led to price rise and other hardships to the common people.
