Kolkata, April 6 (IANS) Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) patriarch Jyoti Basu Monday regretted not being able to participate in the election campaign for the Left Front in West Bengal, saying he was “physically unfit” to do so.
“This time I could do nothing for the Left Front as I have become physically unfit to participate in poll campaign,” Basu told reporters at his Salt Lake residence here, while launching a website for Laxman Seth, the CPI-M candidate from Tamluk Lok Sabha seat.
“I came to know from Left Front chairman Biman Bose that our party cadres are working hard across the state so that our candidates can win in the election,” the veteran leader said.
“We have to carry on with the victorious legacy of the Left Front in this April-May elections also. I wish that Left Front candidates would win in the coming general election,” Basu added.
