People of W Bengal won't forgive Mamata: CPM

March 25, 2009 01:00 IST

People of West Bengal will not forgive Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee for forcing the Tatas to exit from Singur from where 'Nano' could have been rolled out, Left Front chairman Biman Bose said in Berhampore on Monday.

"The people of Bengal are unhappy at Nano's rollout from Mumbai...They will not forgive Mamata Banerjee," Bose said referring to Mamata Banerjee-led opposition at Singur which according to Ratan Tata forced him to shift the project to Sanand in Gujarat.

He also slammed Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for his 'wrong approach' in handling foreign policy and developmental issues.

"There has been no development in the country during the last five years of UPA rule," Bose, also the CPI(M) state secretary, told reporters during a district level meeting of Left parties workers here.

Claiming that many parties are leaving the UPA and the NDA to partner with the Third Front, he said the Front was formed keeping in mind the overall development, peace and harmony of the country.
