Kolkata: Outgoing Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee will not attend the CPI(M) Politburo meeting beginning in Delhi on Sunday, his party said, as his presence was required here.

"There is need for Bhattacharjee's presence in Kolkata. He has been asked to stay in view of post-poll result violence in different parts of the state. Our party workers are being attacked and looting and arson is taking place," CPI(M) state secretary Biman Bose told reporters here.

Bose denied reports that Bhattacharjee had decided to resign from the Politburo owning moral responsibility for the party's rout. "There is no basis for such reports."

Bose and Nirupam Sen left for Delhi to attend the politburo meeting.
