Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee today termed Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee as “merchant of terror” for the alleged role of the state government in Nandigram violence.
“Buddhadeb babu has set the whole state on fire and there seems to be no rule of law in the state. He is the merchant of terror. It’s time the people of West Bengal took a pledge and threw his government away,” Mamata said at a citizens’ convention held at Mahajati Sadan which was also attended by Prabhas Ghosh, general secretary of the SUCI.
Mamata said alliance with the SUCI was because of the demand from people she decided to join hands with the SUCI. “What’s wrong with joining hands with SUCI. All the forces who are opposed to the CPM should unite and fight the Fascists,” she added.
