Early polls? Mamata says she didn't say that
Banerjee was reported to have told her party workers Friday to prepare for early polls. The comment did not go down well with the Congress, which leads the ruling United progressive Alliance (UPA).
"I have got information that a meeting was held in Delhi. I won't say which party convened that meeting. They want to hold the Lok Sabha polls by 2013," Banerjee was widely quoted as saying in Kolkata.
"Any day, we can face the election. So, we must be ready to face it. And we must not do anything that the people misunderstand me," the Trinamool chief said.
The Congress ruled out any early polls.
Expressing serious concern over the ongoing protests in Andhra Pradesh, following the nod for the creation of a separate Telangana State, the Communist Party of India (CPI) leader D Raja said that the Centre must address the genuine concerns of the people and assure them that their interests will be duly protected.
