Talk less, work more: Congress to Trinamool

May 17, 2012 16:43 IST

The achievements of the Mamata Banerjee government in West Bengal on Thursday came in for question with key ally Congress asking it to "talk less and work more", saying it was not known as to which of the promises had been implemented by it so far.

"Till now, we don't know which project has been converted into ground reality because things are at promise and announcement level only. A large number of farmers have been committing suicide in West Bengal and unemployment is also on the rise. I want to say that they should talk less and work more," Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury told media persons in New Delhi.

He was asked to comment on the performance of the state government on completion of its one year next week.

Reacting to the comments of Chowdhury, Trinamool Congress MP Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar said, "I do not know who has said this but we don't rate any Tom, Dick and Harry to comment on our leader because Mamata Banerjee is beyond criticism of these small fries who can't even prove themselves during elections."

Questioning the performance of Congress in UP elections, Dastidar said the mismanagement of the Congress in addressing the Air India issue could be seen by everyone.

"Pilots are going on strikes. Some are threatening to commit suicide and they are not being paid salaries. The Air India is in complete mess. Before commenting on a person like Mamata Banerjee, they should look after their departments and party," she said.
