Kolkata: Former West Bengal Chief Minister
Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee today termed the arrest of CPI(M)
leader and former minister Sushanta Ghosh in a murder case as
"political revenge" by Trinamool Congress after coming to
power in the state.
"They have dug up a 10-year old case and arrested Sushanta
Ghosh. They are setting up a commission on atrocities on the
refugees at Marichjhanpi. The Trinamool Congress is reopening
old cases which is political vendetta," Bhattacharjee told a
Left Front rally here to protest alleged attacks on party
Referring to the Sain family massacre in Burdwan town
where four persons were hacked to death allegedly by Left
Front supporters, Bhattacharjee said, "They are setting up a
commission on what happened nearly 40 years ago.
"When I was the chief minister the Trinamool Congress
vandalised the Assembly, attacked police stations and slapped
on duty police officers, but I didn`t take any action against
them," he said.
"They are killing our supporters, resorting to violence,
driving out our workers and supporters from home and trying to
implicating them in false cases," the former chief minister
said, alleging that 30 Front workers and supporters were
killed since the Assembly elections in April-May.
Ghosh, a key accused in a case of murder, was arrested
last evening by CID after his conditional bail was rejected by
a Midnapore court.
