Bally (WB): Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday attacked the Opposition CPM, accusing it of leaving a "huge debt burden" on the ruling Trinamool Congress dispensation and claimed it would have "auctioned" the state if it were "in her place".
"CPM had left a debt burden of two lakh crore rupees when we came to power. Inspite of it Bengal has turned around during our rule. CPM would have auctioned Bengal if they were in my place," she told an election meeting.
"Mother of thieves shout the most," she remarked for criticising her.
Launching a scathing attack on the opposition for unleashing sharp "criticism" against her, the TMC supremo said "Many leaders are saying many things against me but I never made any personal attack against anybody. It doesn't look nice for a human being to bite a dog," she said.
Stating that it was her government that had ushered in development in the state, Banerjee said a "shilpa tirtha" (industrial hub) is being set up at Belur with Japanese collaboration in which Rs 6,800 crore would be invested and one lakh people would get employment.
Apart from this a textile park is also being set up at Belur in which Rs 3,000 crore is being invested, she said.
"The performance of our government will be a matter of research in the world one day," she said adding Bengal is number one in many fields including small scale industry sector, skill development and 100 days work.
The Balurghat MP further said Mamata Banerjee should 'stop harbouring ambitions of becoming the next PM' and concentrate on running Bengal properly
