KOLKATA: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has hit out at the Left-inclined parties on Wednesday and alleged that the Communist Party of India (Marxist) drove away the Tatas out of Singur district. “We did not drive away Tata from Singur, but CPI-M did,” the CM said.
Speaking at the ‘Bijiya Sammilani’ event, Mamata Banerjee said, “We did not drive away Tata from Singur, but CPI-M did,” adding that South Bengal and North Bengal are the same.
“There is only one Bengal. We want peace, no need to think about any separation. We are all equal. Bongo (Bengal) needs Songo (togetherness) and not Vongho (Division),” she said.
The CPI-M and Mamata Banerjee are old rivals as Trinamool Congress came to power in 2011 after defeating the Left government. (ANI)
