International Affairs and History at the London School of Economics, took a dig at the Trinamool Congress government during an event at IIM Kolkata on Wednesday.
He said West Bengal always lacked a civil society, which is the moral conscience of any state.
"West Bengal never had a civil society because the communists would not allow it. I would regret to say that Mamata Banerjee doesn't allow a civil society here," he said when asked to comment on the state's position vis-a-vis his recent article which said Bangladesh has a strong civil society.
Guha made these comments on the sidelines of the closing ceremony of the golden jubilee celebrations at IIM Kolkata.
Criticising the TMC government's policies and point of view, he said, "My criticism of TMC is that their attitude is 'either you are with us or against us'."
