Burdwan: Amid a majority of Bengali
intellectuals seeking a change of government in West Bengal,
popular author Buddhadeb Guha today said he would not writing
anything for two years unless the alleged anarchy unleashed by
Trinamool Congress was stopped.

"I`ll not write for two years. I would rather paint.

I am having sleepless nights witnessing the tantrums of that
woman mad to seize power from the Chief Minister Buddhadeb
Bhattacharjee, to fulfill her personal ambition," the
74-year-old writer, whose 18 titles are held by the `Library
of Congress` in US, said.

Without naming the Trinamool Congress chief Mamata
Banerjee, Guha, said, "That woman`s arrogant attitude, hollow
promises, one-man show, ugly language are repulsive. I wonder
if she can run the government for a full five-year term if TC
comes to power.

"If things do not change, I may call upon the people
to revolt after two years through my writings," the chartered
accountant-turned writer said.

Guha made an open appeal to the people to vote for
CPI(M) which, he said, "Had done a lot for the poor of the
state."

The author, who has to his credit about 146 fictions,
is a recipient of many awards and is best known for his novel
`Madhukori` which is held as a milestone of Bengali modern
literature.

He was speaking during an inauguration of a 10-day
state sponsored folk festival here.
