Kolkata: Ridiculing West Bengal Chief
Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee`s claim that the Left Front
will win the upcoming Assembly elections in the state,
Trinamool Congress on Wednesday said he had actually conceded defeat
by admitting his mistakes.
"The government has already conceded defeat. He has
given a farewell speech in his press conference. It is no use
seeking apologies for his mistakes now," TC Secretary General
Partha Chatterjee told reporters here.
What the chief minister said today on land acquisition
had been voiced by TC chief Mamata Banerjee much earlier, the
leader of the opposition said.
"The government has already gone into ventilation. What
is the use of procuring new medicines now", he quipped.
Referring to CPI(M)`s demand to the Election Commission
to execute all NBWs in which Mamata Banerjee`s name was also
included, Chatterjee dared the chief minister to arrest her.
"Mamata is now at home. Let him arrest her if he has
courage", he said.
The chief minister, however, had already said that his
government had no intention to harass or arrest Banerjee in
connection with an incident at Barasat in North 24 parganas
district in 1994, in which the police had registered FIRs
On the suspension of three Trinamool MLAs in the state
Assembly today, Chatterjee said the Speaker Hasim Abdul Halim
had misused his power.
