Minister for Irrigation and Small Scale Industries Manas Bhuniya's remark that "CPM moles in the state administration are obstructing the implementation of various development programmes" has not gone down well with the officers of his own department.

"We could not groom ideal Communist leaders and workers," Bose said.
