Howrah (WB): Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee on Saturday took a dig at West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee for sharing the dais with CPI(M) leader Anil Basu who had come under fire for making derogatory remarks against her.

"The CPI(M) has a face and a mask to conceal it. While the face is used to abuse, the mask says that it is not proper to be so," Banerjee told an election meeting here in Howrah district referring to the Chief Minister asking Basu to apologise for his foul language.

This is the first time that the Chief Minister met Basu yesterday after he censured the former party MP for using intemperate language against Mamata. Basu has been barred from addressing election meetings.

The Trinamool Congress has demanded stern action against Basu by the Election Commission which has served notice on the former MP for his remarks against the TC chief.

Later addressing another election rally in the same district, Banerjee targetted the BJP for precipitating a division in anti-Left votes.

"It is with the help of the CPI(M) that the BJP is trying to come into reckoning in the state. Not a single vote should be cast for it," she said.

She asked voters not to support candidates put up merely to eat into the Trinamool Congress's votebank.
