Kolkata: Congress, an ally of the
Trinamool Congress, today condemned the killing of two CPI(M)
leaders in Burdwan town in West Bengal, but blamed
`miscreants` for the incident.
"An unfortunate incident has taken place in Burdwan
where a CPI(M) procession was attacked by some miscreants
leading to the death of two, including a CPI(M) MLA. We
condemn the attack," WBPCC president Pradip Bhattacharjee told
The CPI(M) has squarely blamed the Trinamool
Congress for the death of Pradip Tah and Kamal Gayen at
Dewandighi in Burdwan town. The Trinamool Congress has denied
"Political killings in Bengal must stop. But
unfortunately it is going on," he said.
"The guilty must be brought to justice without seeing
the political colour of the culprits," he said.
