NEDUMBASSERY: Union Minister for Overseas Indian Affairs Vayalar Ravi on Friday urged West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee to take lessons from Kerala's former Chief Ministers A.K. Antony and Oommen Chandy in facing people's agitations.

Talking to mediapersons here, Mr. Ravi said how these two leaders handled various stirs led by the then Opposition Left Democratic Front over issues like self-financing colleges with restraint in the face of extreme provocation was a model for the Bengal leader to follow.
