Kolkata: Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee Wednesday challenged the central government`s version that efforts were made to contact her, but without success.
"I was never informed of the decisions on allowing FDI in retail. I will request Congress leaders not to distort facts. They must communicate reality," she told reporters here contesting Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram`s statement in Delhi that the PMO had tried to contact her about decisions on diesel and FDI in retail, but without success.
Railway minister Mukul Roy, who flanked her, said that as a cabinet minister he had not received any message from the PMO to communicate with Mamata Banerjee.
