Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Sunday made an indirect attack on SP for its U-turn by writing on her Facebook wall that "values, public interest have been compromised through the use of money, power and scams" in the Indian polity.
"It is most unfortunate that politics in our great nation has become murky and values, public interest have been compromised through the use of money, power and scams," Mamata wrote on her wall of the social networking website.
She then goes on to appeal "all Indian citizens and of course, the young generation of India, to raise their voices" and "fight against corruption, back-room deal making, Machiavellian manipulations and machinations."
Appreciating an 'overwhelming' response to her Facebook appeal for supporting former President APJ Abdul Kalam in the Presidential election, Mamata in another post expressed her thanks. "Thank you all for your overwhelming response, in such a short span of time, for this great cause of nation...I am sure this united voice will take the issue to the next level," she wrote.
Although known to be tech-savvy, Banerjee had so far stayed away from personally participating in social networking websites despite having courted controversies for being 'intolerant' of unsavoury comments and cartoons about her.
