Kolkata, Sept 27 (ANI): West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee lambasted the Trinamool Congress for its anti industrialization movement here today.

He also stressed that industrialization is the need of the hour to create job opportunities for growing number of employed youth in the country as well as the State.

The Chief Minister questioned the students and youth that what do they want to do? He said dont you want the factories in the State? He further said that the oppositions dont want their State to progress.

He blamed the Trinamool Congress and said that they are not going to decide the future of their State but the people of West Bengal, the new generation of West Bengal, will decide whether to progress or not.

Buddhadeb said I had told Trinamool Congress Chief Mamata Bannerjee about Singur many times and have asked her repeatedly whether she wanted the factory or not. And if she want factory in the state then it would not be possible to return 300 or 400 acres of land, and if you want factory then accept it.

He further added that the farmers of Singur would get much more after the set up of the factory and the whole economy of Singur will be changed.

On the other hand, Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPM) Politburo member and Rajya Sabha MP Sitaram Yechury also came down heavily on the Indo-US civil nuclear cooperation deal.

He called the deal a total wastage of money.

Yechury said the Prime Minister who is in Washington to finalise the deal, have forgot that the agreement is against all the assurances given by him.

He also criticised Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh for his remarks that the people of India deeply love US President George W. Bush.

Yechury and Bhattacharjee were speaking in a Students Federation of India (SFI) rally in Kolkata. (ANI)
