LF partners slam Biman Bose for snide remarks

Kolkata: Left Front partners on Sunday criticised Front chairman and veteran CPI-M leader Biman Bose for his snide remarks against Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, saying personal attack was not welcome.

"Personal attack is not welcome. After the loss in the Assembly elections, Front workers' morale is low and the leaders should be all the more careful in choosing words," Forward Bloc leader Naren Chatterjee said.

Bose had made an unsavoury remark against the chief minister when asked about the relationship between allies Trinamool Congress and the Congress a few days ago and had to issue a statement apologising for it within a few hours.

"Why say things for which you have to apologise? This only brings down the morale of the workers and supporters," Chatterjee told a Bengali news channel.

Yesterday Bose had again claimed that Banerjee 'has problem walking and that is why she is going to visit the districts by car'.

Kironmoy Nanda, leader of the Socialist Party, said that Bose should restrain himself from making such comments.

RSP leader Subhas Naskar also did not approve of Bose's comments, saying 'such comments are not welcome and should be rectified within his party'.
