CPM tells Mamata to be CM of state, not her party

Wednesday

For the second consecutive day, senior CPM leaders took out a rally demanding arrest of Trinamool Congress MLA Arabul Islam for the assault on party leader Abdur Rezzak Mollah.

Questioning Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's silence over the recent incidents of violence in the state, CPM state secretary Biman Bose accused her of forgetting her duty and termed it a dangerous trend.

"Why is she silent over the recent incidents of violence? It is really surprising that she is keeping mum on all the incidents of violence from assault on MLA Rezzak Mollah to firing on CPM cadres by Trinamool goons. This is a dangerous trend," Bose told a rally, which was attended by former chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharya.

"She should not forget that she is a chief minister. But she is acting as if she is the chief minister of only the Trinamool Congress," Bose added.
