Mamata's anti BJP stand is unmasked by Former Trinamul MP' s Book: CPM
Malda, 14 April, 2014: Referring to a book titled ' An outsider in Politics' written by former Trinamul Congress MP Krishna Bose, CPI-M Central commitree member and state CITU president Shyamal Chakraborty today claimed that Trinaul's anti-BJP stand was actually a hoax to earn votes from the minority community.
Chakraborty said here today, "In page no.211 of the book Mrs Bose conceded that she alobg wuth other Trinamul MPs were whipped to vote for BJP during a debate over Godhra genocide in Lok Sabha in2002."
"Such a whip pricked her conscience but she was compelled to abide by the party stand," Chakraborty added hinting that they may use the content of the book against Trinamul in election campaign.
"Presently the TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee has come heavily on BJP. But it is only a convenient stand to woo minority voters. People must not forget tgat Mamata Banerjee greeted Narendra Modi after he was elected Gujrat chief minister post Godhra riot," Chakraborty said.
He claimed that after the poll if the situation demands, Trinamul might hold the hand of BJP again.
