Kolkata: CPI(M) on Wednesday said Trinamool Congress
chief Mamata Banerjee`s decision not to contest the coming
Assembly polls in West Bengal was due to the fact that she
wanted to remain the Railway Minister after the elections.
"She (Banerjee) will not contest the election as she
would like to remain Railway Minister even after the polls,"
CPI(M) politburo member and party`s state unit Secretary Biman Bose said.
Bose was talking to reporters on the sidelines of the
CPI(M)`s Kolkata district committee conference here.
