Trinamool indulging in ‘partycracy’: Left Front

Mamata Banerjee Kolkata, July 28 (IANS) Having faced the ire of opponents for most part of its 34-year rule for establishing “partycracy”, West Bengal’s opposition Left Front (LF) Thursday brought the same charge against the ruling Trinamool Congress.

Left Front chairman Biman Bose accused the Trinamool Congress of creating an “environment of terror”, and said they would stage sit-in demonstrations before the assembly Aug 12 and the Lok Sabha Aug 25 against the alleged atrocities by the Trinamool.

Training his guns on the Trinamool-led government, Bose alleged that the expert committees set up by the new regime were nothing but an exercise in getting people close to the party important posts.

“The Trinamool Congress had constantly accused us (the former LF government) of indulging in ‘partycracy’. But actually the Trinamool government itself is indulging in it,”Bose said.

“All these expert committees have been set up (by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee) to place people of her choice at important positions. Our people are being replaced by people preferred by them,” he added.

“There is no iota of democracy in establishing these expert groups. They are being formed to reward people who are close to the Trinamool,” he said.

Citing the recent attacks on farmers in North 24-Parganas and heckling of former state minority development minister Abdus Sattar, Bose said there was a growing apprehension among the people for their safety and security.

“We urge the people to join us in our fight against this reign of terror,” said Bose.
