TMC, Cong can only take WB to ruins: Buddhadeb
Buddhadeb asserted that the Left Front will return to power and crush the Maoists on the grounds of West Midnapore.

Ranaghat: Ridiculing the call for change by the TMC-Congress alliance in West Bengal, Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee on Saturday said the Opposition was courting Maoists and separatists to bring ruin to the state.

"We are often hearing the words 'paribartan' (change) from these people. What change are they talking about? To lead the state to extinction by hobnobbing with Maoists and Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM)?" Bhattacharjee told an election rally in Ranaghat in favour of the Left Front candidates in Nadia district.

"Don't forget that TMC has aided the Maoists at Junglemahal and the GJM in the hills. Can you imagine what will happen if such a force comes to power? That will spell doom for Bengal. I know they will be defeated by the people," the chief minister said.

Bhattacharjee asserted that the Left Front will return to power for the eighth time and "crush the Maoists on the grounds of West Midnapore".

Turning to industrialisation, Bhattacharjee cited the Singur issue and blamed TMC for "throwing away an important industrial project of the state."

"How can they facilitate industries in Bengal?" he asked the crowd of Left activists. Bhattacharjee also dwelt on the need to lay equal stress on agriculture and industry for economic growth. He asked the party workers to reach out to those people who were "still indecisive about whom to vote for and not conscious about the danger lurking ahead".

The chief minister blamed Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee for "playing havoc with the pension fund of the public."

"The Centre is also unresponsive to the plight of the ready-made garment industry," he said criticising the "prolonged silence of their cabinet colleague Mamata Banerjee on these issues."
