On Monday, former West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharya came down heavily on the ruling TMC and the BJP, accusing them of ruining the state and its secular credentials. Bhattacharya, 76, said it is only the Left-Congress-ISF alliance that can bring the state out of the darkness. Noting that “the silence of a crematorium” prevails in Singur and Nandigram, he alleged that under the present dispensation, the state has gone backwards in agriculture, while no industry was established during its 10-year-tenure.
