Name industrialists going with Mamata to Singapore: CPI-M
Posted on Aug 17 2014 | IANS
Kolkata, Aug 17 : The Communist Party of India-Marxist Sunday asked West Bengal's ruling Trinamool Congress to spell out the names of industrialists accompanying Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to Singapore.
"I had asked yesterday (Saturday) why the chief minister is going to Singapore with a 60-member delegation. In response, a minister said I was ignorant. He said 50 members of the delegation are industrialists. My point blank question is who are these industrialists," CPI-M state secretary Biman Bose told media persons here.
Banerjee is slated to leave for the city-state late Sunday in a bid to tap investment for the state.
Bose, also chairman of Left Front, said so long as the menace of extortion and lawlessness existed in the state, "it would be too fanciful to even think of a industry-friendly environment in Bengal".
