Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister
Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee Monday asserted that he and his party
CPI(M) will remain in power in the state in future.

"We will never leave. We cannot transfer power to an
irresponsible and indisciplined party and bring total darkness
to the state," Bhattacharjee said apparently referring to the
Trinamool Congress.

He was reacting to some media reports that he had
expressed doubt at a function yesterday whether staying in
power would be possible after the next Assembly elections.

The Left Front needs to stay in power so that West
Bengal can surge ahead, he stated.
