DURGAPUR, 13 JULY: Trinamul Congress MP, Kalyan Banerjee today lashed out at state election commissioner, Ms Mira Pande saying that in the near future she might as well contest the elections as a CPI-M candidate.
He was addressing a poll campaign at Andal in Burdwan.
Mr Banerjee alleged that Ms Pande was acting as CPI-M’s broker. “She could anticipate that we are going to grab most of the zilla parishad seats. Apprehending CPI-M&’s defeat, she tried to resist the three-tier election. As prominent CPI-M’s leaders like Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee and Gautam Deb have lost all credibility, in the future we may see Ms Pande contesting election as a CPI-M candidate,” he said. sns
