West Bengal CM to skip CPI (M) politburo meet on MondayMay 17th, 2009 - 12:49 pm ICT by ANI
Kolkata, May 17 (ANI): West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee is likely to skip the CPI (M) politburo meeting on Monday in Delhi.
The reason for the West Bengal Chief Minister skipping the politburo meeting is that he wants to “oversee the law and order situation in the state”.
The move assumes significance in the wake of the Left Front’s debacle in the Lok Sabha elections in West Bengal. The politburo meeting has been convened to discuss the poll outcome.
Bhattacharjee is unlikely to attend the politburo meeting “as he has to oversee the law and order situation in the state after the announcement of Lok Sabha election results,” sources said. (ANI)
