Mamata now blaming CPM for everything that goes wrong: Karat

General Secretary Prakash Karat today pooh-poohed West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's reported allegation that Congress had colluded with CPI(M) in the state.

"Everybody knows that Trinamool Congress joined hands with Congress to fight the CPI(M) and the Left Front in the last elections, that is just seven months ago... all the commitments she had made in the elections, she has not taken any steps to fulfil them.


"So, there is no use blaming CPI(M) for everything. If anything goes wrong, she blames CPI(M). If Congress does something, that is also because of CPI(M)," he said.

About coming assembly elections in five states, he said CPI(M) was contesting nine seats in Punjab where an electoral understanding had been reached between CPI, CPI(M), Punjab People's Party and Akali Dal (Longowal).

CPI(M) was also fighting 18 seats in Uttar Pradesh, six in Uttarakhand and two seats in Manipur, he said, hoping that the Left parties would win some seats.
