Udaynarayanpur (WB): Responding to Home minister P Chidambaram's attack on the Left Front government in West Bengal, Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee on Monday held him 'fully responsible' for unrest in Kashmir and Andhra Pradesh and asked him 'to take care of his own business'.

"Chidambaram described us as the worst-governed state, but he should give an account of how the central government is functioning," Bhatacharjee retorted at a Left front election rally here in Howrah district.

"I advise that the doctor should treat himself first and not try to teach us as we are confident of taking care of ourselves," he remarked.

Lashing out at Chidambaram's assessment of the law and order situation in the state, Bhattacharjee said, "It is amazing that he is indifferent to the crime and murder being committed by the Trinamool Congress."

Because of the central government's 'non-functioning', there is unrest in Kashmir and Andhra Pradesh where the Telangana movement is gaining momentum, the chief minister said.

He also lashed out at Chidambaram for 'breaking a Left Front government in Tripura once'.

Expressing his determination to resist Maoists in the state at any cost, he said, "I will like to know from the home minister whether he overlooks the Maoist-Trinamool Congress nexus."

Bhattacharjee claimed that the CPI-M's vote percentage would increase in West Midnapore district as a result of today's Chidambaram-addressed rallies at Garbeta and Keshpur.
