Left leaders meet Mamata, urge to stop post-poll violence

Kolkata, May 31 (IANS) Newly elected Left Front legislature party leader in West Bengal Sujan Chakraborty on Tuesday met Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and urged her to take urgent steps to stop post-poll violence in the state.

Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) state secretariat member Chakraborty, who won the recent assembly polls from the Jadavpur constituency in South 24-Parganas district, was elected Left Front legislature party leader earlier in the day.

After the meting, Chakraborty told the media: “We told her that even after the conclusion of the elections, loot and violence is still going on and the government must pay attention to these issues. She advised us to talk to Parliamentary Affairs Minister Partha Chatterjee regarding these issues.”

Chakraborty was accompanied by three other Left Front legislators — Anisur Rahaman and Asok Bhattacharya of the CPI-M, and Biswanath Chowdhury of the Revolutionary Socialist Party — during the meeting with the chief minister.

The LF, Congress and the BJP have accused the ruling Trinamool Congress of perpetrating violence on their workers since the conclusion of the polls.

The Trinamool has denied the allegations, and claimed that the “one or two sporadic incidents” in the state were the fall-out of “intimidation” and “provocation” by the opposition parties.
