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.
