Trinamool slams Buddhadeb for questioning Mamata's honesty

Feb 6 2013, 6:40am CST | by

Kolkata, Feb 6 (IANS) The Trinamool Congress Wednesday demanded an apology from former West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee who had questioned Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's "honesty".

Kolkata, Feb 6 — The Trinamool Congress Wednesday demanded an apology from former West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee who had questioned Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's "honesty".

"Nobody in Indian politics can question Mamata Banerjee's honesty. Workers of the Trinamool Congress believe her. The people of the state believe her. Buddhadeb should come to his senses. When that happens, he will admit his mistake and apologise to Banerjee," said State Urban Development Minister Firhad Hakim.

"Bhattacharjee had left Jyoti Basu's ministry in the 1990s. His daughter had said he would not continue in a ministry of thieves. But he rejoined the cabinet within a couple of years lured by its office," said Hakim.

Raising questions about Banerjee being projected as a "symbol of honesty" by the Trinamool Congress, CPI-M leader Bhattacharjee Tuesday asked the media to probe her family's financial condition after she came to power.

"She does not pass the yardstick of honesty. I can't accept her as being honest. This is no secret. A lot of people close to her know this and they have started talking about it," Bhattacharjee told news channel 24 Ghanta.

Asked if he could provide details, Bhattacharjee said: "I am not a drain inspector. You can probe it if you want to. Many know what people close to her are doing. Everything will come out easily if there is an investigation."

Lashing out at Bhattacharjee, Hakim referred to the Left Front's comprehensive defeat in the 2011 assembly polls. "Bhattacharjee has been rejected by the people of the state. Even the people of his assembly constituency rejected him. He has no moral right to make such allegations," Hakim said.

He added: "We condemn his statement. Mamata Banerjee has faith in the people. We leave the matter to the people who will give a befitting reply (to Bhattacharjee)."
