CPM has ruined Bengal’s progress: Mamata Banerjee

Left Front leaders are creating trouble in West Bengal to stall progress of the state, chief minister Mamata Banerjee said on Friday.

After inaugurating 4.3 kilometer long Park Circus to EM Bypass flyover, she said that Left Front leaders in 34 years had ruined the state. “CPI-M led government had not taken up any developmental work in those years. They had pushed the state into a debt trap. And now when the people have rejected them and sent them to opposition benches they are now trying to instigate violence in the state and stalling developmental work,” she said.

Miss Banerjee also said that leaders of the Left Front always try to display their faces in television channels and causing unrest in the entire West Bengal. “These leaders (Left Front) don’t have any work to do apart from showing their faces in television channels. They are only interested in petty politics and halt the development work. They should stay quiet as they have been rejected by the people of West Bengal,” Miss Banerjee said.

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today also described her visit to Bhutan as “historic” and said it would boost the relationship between the two neighbouring nations. “Even I asked the King of Bhutan whether they are facing such kind of petty politics like West Bengal,” she said.

She also praised Bhutanese Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay for attending the Biswa Bangla Sammelan on January 8 and 9. “They are so good, even the Prime Minister, had in fact, come to see me off in Thimphu,” she said.
