Buddhadeb Bhattacharya slams Mamata, Singh
Former West Bengal chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharya said the state was in a sorry situation with farmers not being able to sell their produce and no new industries coming up.
Speaking at a rally on Sunday, Buddhadeb said: "The government failed to attract a single fresh investment. IT majors Wipro and Infosys, who came here during our rule, are now thinking of leaving the state."
He said the profile of Hooghly district would have been different now if the Trinamool had allowed the Tatas to build the Nano factory at Singur.
Buddhadeb also lashed out at the Centre and said Singh would not be able to come back to power like Barack Obama did in the US.
"Manmohan Singh... is trying but will not succeed with the kind of policies being pursued by his government. One of his friends, Barack Obama, has been re-elected. But he (Singh) will not be be able to repeat the feat because the policy of appeasing the rich will not work in our country," he said.
