Says Trinamool is adopting ‘regressive' policies and committing ‘grave errors'

The Trinamool Congress government “is committing grave errors” in its policies that were “regressive and both industry and agriculture had suffered in more than seven months that it was in power, the former Chief Minister of West Bengal, Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee, said at Harinavipur in South 24 Parganas district on Sunday

 “This government has decided that it will not acquire land for industry. It is committing a mistake; it is pushing us backwards. Its policies have pushed us back in both agriculture and industry,” Mr. Bhattacharjee, who is also a member of the Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) said at an open session of the South 24 Parganas district conference of the party.

 Mr. Bhattacharjee said that even industrialists had realised that prospects for industry in the State were bleak.  He said farmers were being forced into distress sales this season.
