Mamata-Angry
Kolkata, Aug 28: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamaata Banerjee slammed the media yet again on Tuesday, saying the latter was more interested in commercial gains instead of focussing on humane sides, a report of Bengali news channel said.

Speaking from the podium on the occasion of the foundation day of Trinamool Chhatra Parishad, Banerjee said all sorts of negative campaign was being carried out against her government but it was determined to overcome all challenges. She also said that a section of the elite society could not accept her as a leadership owing to her modest background.

The CM also attacked the CPI(M), saying the latter was behaving in a way as if it would return to power tomorrow. "They can not do anything in the next 23 and half years, forget three-and-half years," Banerjee was quoted in the report. She accused the former Left Front government of doing little to curb crime against women.

"Even the police was not allowed to file FIRs," she said, accusing the former government of letting important files get vanish from the state secretariat. The state panchayat minister, Subrata Mukhopadhyay, slammed the Congress on the occasion, saying the latter had turned itself into a sub-committee of the CPI(M). We must remain alert about them, he said.
