I will speak after a few days, says Somnath

July 29, 2008 13:08 IST

"I will speak after a few days. I leave the matter to the people (to judge)," Lok Sabha Speaker Somanth Chatterjee has said, breaking his silence after his expulsion from the Communist Party of India � Marxist, for refusing to quit his post after his party's withdrawal from the United Progressive Alliance government.

He said, "So many things have been said. Let me see for a few days more".

Chatterjee was speaking to reporters in Kolkata after visiting his ailing sister.

The Speaker had been eluding mediapersons ever since he reached Kolkata from Delhi [Images] and did not even take telephone calls from reporters.
