Howrah (WB): Trinamool Congress chief Mamata
Banerjee on Saturday took a dig at West Bengal Chief Minister
Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee for sharing the dais with CPI(M)
leader Anil Basu who had come under fire for making derogatory
remarks against her.
"The CPI(M) has a face and a mask to conceal it. While the
face is used to abuse, the mask says that it is not proper to
be so," Banerjee told an election meeting here in Howrah
district referring to the Chief Minister asking Basu to
apologise for his foul language.
This is the first time that the Chief Minister met Basu
yesterday after he censured the former party MP for using
intemperate language against Mamata. Basu has been barred
from addressing election meetings.
The Trinamool Congress has demanded stern action against
Basu by the Election Commission which has served notice on the
former MP for his remarks against the TC chief.
Later addressing another election rally in the same
district, Banerjee targetted the BJP for precipitating a
division in anti-Left votes.
"It is with the help of the CPI(M) that the BJP is trying
to come into reckoning in the state. Not a single vote should
be cast for it," she said.
She asked voters not to support candidates put up merely
to eat into the Trinamool Congress`s votebank.
