Kolkata: The Trinamool Congress which
is a UPA partner was equally responsible for scams,
corruption, price rise and infiltration from Bangladesh
through West Bengal and Assam borders, former BJP President
Venkaiah Naidu said here on Saturday.
"Why is the Trinamool Congress silent on all these
contentious issues. Instead of acting as checkmate, it is
working with the Congress to deceive the people," Naidu said
during campaigning.

The senior BJP leader, however, said that the people
in the state were now looking for `parivartan` (change) fed up
with Left Front `misrule`.

"Let see what kind of parivartan is going to take
place in the state," the BJP MP said.

Criticising the Trinamool Congress for its attack on
BJP, Naidu questioned "If the BJP has no stake in the state,
why are they attacking us repeatedly?"
He claimed that the BJP would be a force to reckon
with in West Bengal, Assam, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Pondichery
which went to the polls.

To a question about former CPI(M) MP Anil Basu using
expletives against TC chief Mamata Banerjee Naidu said "I knew
muscle power was active in the state, but I am surprised to
hear allegations about money power too this time."
