Somnath congratulates Mamata on her party`s victory
Kolkata: Former Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath
Chatterjee on Sunday wrote to Trinamool Congress chief Mamata
Banerjee congratulating her on the party`s resounding victory
in the West Bengal Assembly elections.
"I wrote a letter to her congratulating her on her
party`s victory. I have done this out of courtesy," he said.
He said Banerjee had thanked him over telephone for
the letter and had promised to visit him at a convenient time.
In 1984, Banerjee had entered Parliament for the first
time after defeating Chatterjee, the then CPI(M) heavyweight,
in the Jadavpur Lok Sabha constituency.
Chatterjee was expelled from the CPI(M) when he
refused his party`s whip to vote against the government in the
July 2008 vote of confidence in Parliament.
