Dankuni: Foreign powers tried to destabilise the Left Front government in West Bengal, while there were forces within the country also which tried to do the same thing, West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee said on Thursday.

"Foreign powers have tried to dislodge the Left Front government in the past and the conspiracy is still continuing," the chief minister told an election rally here in Hooghly district.

Stating that foreign powers had made an attempt to dislodge the government by dropping arms in Purulia district on December 17, 1995, he claimed that 'the conspiracy was continuing'.

He also said there were many forces in the country bent upon dislodging the Left Front government.

The chief minister raked up Trinamool Congress' 'huge poll expenditure' and said "full bench of Election Commission has arrived in Kolkata and our views have been submitted before it.

"The Trinamool Congress has been spending huge sums of money and we want to know from where it has come," he said.

Pointing out that the Trinamool used helicopters in election campaign, Bhattacharjee said "Our party is not in a position to hire helicopters for such purposes."

Bhattacharjee asserted he was confident the eighth Left Front government would be a reality.
