Kolkata: Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee on Monday welcomed Union Home Minister P Chidambaram's sharp criticism of law and order situation in West Bengal and said that what she has been harping on continuously has been vindicated.

"What I have been saying for several years has been vindicated. I heard that Mr Chidambaram came down on the law and order and the armed camps of the CPI(M). I was fed up continuously telling (the Centre) about the CPI(M)'s reign of terror and killings," she told an election meeting.

"In West Bengal in more than 34 years since the CPI(M) government came to power, 75,000 people have been killed," she claimed at a meeting at Bejoygarh in Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacherjee's Jadavpore constituency, the second time in four days.

Under Left Front rule a section of police had been made to act like 'CPI(M) cadres' to serve party interests, she alleged.

Claiming that 'history' would be created when the CPI(M) was ousted after 35 years in the state, she said the fight to free the state from 'misrule' was no less than the struggle of Nelson Mandela, the Vietnam war and the Cuban revolution.
