Kolkata: Trinamool Congress and Congress are
opposing the Left Front`s policies irrespective of their merit
just to dislodge the ruling front from power, West Bengal
Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee on Sunday said.

The Congress-led UPA government at the Centre too is
extending support to the Trinamool Congress chief for her
support, to get all its anti-people policies in banking,
insurance, pension and textile sectors passed, Bhattacharjee
alleged at an election meeting.
Describing the coming election as a tough battle with a
far-reaching nationwide impact, Bhattacharjee blamed the
Centre for rise in the prices of essential commodities and
criticised the Trinamool Congress for not protesting against
it, despite being a partner in the UPA.

"Despite having seven ministers, including Mamata
Banerjee in the UPA government, the Trinamool Congress has
failed to perform in the interest of the people," he said and
warned against allowing the party to capture power in the
state which would have disastrous consequences.
"Despite all attempts to dethrone us, we must prevent
Trinamool Congress from capturing power and ensure return of
the LF government for the eight term," Bhattacharjee told the
rally in his constituency Jadavpur.

The chief minister said, "The Trinamool Congress stands
on the foundation of blatant lies and its leader herself is
giving false assurances to voters on various railway projects
in the state though the Railways have no funds to implement
them. The Railways can`t run this way."

He alleged that Trinamool was instigating the statehood
movement in Darjeeling as well as the Maoist movement at
Jangalmahal to divide the state.

Saying he had tried his best to work for people in his
constituency, the chief minister reassured people to remain
accountable to people for all development work the government
had undertaken.

He reminded people of the LF government`s success in
agriculture, land reforms and in the unorganised sector in the
state and promised to work for rapid industrialisation.
