TC flays Yechury`s remark on Mamata
Kolkata: Trinamool Congress on Saturday criticised
CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechury for dubbing its chief Mamata
Banerjee`s decision not to contest the assembly polls as her
"weakness", saying the comment was made out of frustration and
showed that the Left Front was getting "panicky".
"It is ridiculous that a man who has never participated
in a direct election but always acted from outside is making
such comment," Trinamool Congress vice-president Subrata
Mukherjee told reporters here.
Mukherjee said Banerjee had taken the decision not to
contest the election to devote maximum time for campaigning
for the party.
Banerjee had already said "she would lead the government
from the very first day when the Ma-Mati-Manush (Trinamool
slogan) government would be in office in West Bengal after the
polls," he said.
"Mamata`s decision not to contest the polls has created
panic in CPI(M) as more she will campaign, the more it will
bring disaster to the Marxists in Bengal," Mukherjee said.
"There is a constitutional provision for one to be
elected within six months of government formation," the senior
Trinamool leader said.
The decision of Mamata Banerjee not to contest the
West Bengal assembly polls now reflected her "weakness",
Yechury said in Delhi earlier in the day.
