"I want to take the opportunity to warmly compliment the West Bengal government that they have accepted our advice, they have used our security forces and they have taken the help of central agencies and have brought considerable improvement in the situation in West Bengal", Chidambaram said at the inauguration of NSG hub here.

Although Banerjee skipped the function, Chidambaram said that the Centre was happy to work with the new government in the state.

"We worked with the previous state government in Bengal and happy to work with the new government", he said.

"I think after the new government has taken over in West Bengal, the people of the state will readily appreciate and acknowledge that the Naxal problem that was affecting Junglemahal has been substantially controlled", he said.
