Some people with vested interest are trying to create panic by saying that law and order situation in West Bengal has deteriorated, TMC vice president Mukul Roy said to the Chief Election Commissioner on Tuesday.
A Trinamool Congress delegation led by Mukul Roy met the Chief Election Commissioner and appraised him about the real situation in the state. Some groups are trying to portray that the law and order situation had deteriorated over the past few years with a vested interest.
“They are causing panic by giving false statistics,” he said. Roy said that the law and order situation had improved a lot in the past four and a half years. Junglemahal, which was a matter of concern with reports of murder coming from the area every day, is now experiencing development and there is no law and order problem in the area.
Meanwhile, the crucial meeting of the CPI(M) politburo which will take up the election strategy started in Delhi on Tuesday afternoon.
The decision taken up at the politburo will be discussed at the party’s two day central committee meeting that will start in Delhi on Wednesday.
The CPIM leaders from the state have kept their figure crossed over the issue.
In the extended Central Committee meeting which was held in Vijaywada on August 7-9, 2010, the party had decided to maintain equidistance with the Congress and the BJP. In the party congress held in Visakhapattanam the same decision was taken.
Among 16 politburo members there is a difference of opinion about the alliance with Congress, though the leaders from West Bengal are calling this as “people’s alliance.”
In the Central Committee there are more members from Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Kerala and it is difficult to get an unanimous opinion on the matter.
Meanwhile, the Congress high command is keeping a tab on the situation. It will take a decision only after the politburo meeting is over. As the Left Front had withdrawn its support from the UPA II government, many senior AICC leaders are not very keen on making any alliance with CPI(M).
