Mamata urges Congress, CPI-M to join hands with her against BJP
Mamata urges Congress, CPI-M to join hands with her against BJP

Kolkata, June 27 (TIWN) Amid a raging political storm on the cut money issue, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday urged the CPI-M and the Congress to join hands with her to take on the BJP, which has been making steady inroads in the state.

 "I strongly feel all of us, the Trinamool, CPI-M and the Congress should come together against the BJP. (The violence at) Bhatpara is an eye-opener for the people of the state as to what happens if votes go to the BJP", Banerjee said while speaking in the assembly.  The Chief Minister, however, clarified that she was not suggesting that the three parties need to join hands politically. "What I am suggesting is that we can be on the same page with regard to common issues at the national level".  On the issue of cut-money, Banerjee said 0.01 per cent of those in the Trinamool could be corrupt, and said she was trying to discipline her party workers. "There is nothing wrong if I want to discipline my workers. But at the same time, no one can malign us without any proof".
