Kolkata: Former West Bengal chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee has criticized the Mamata Banerjee government saying that he hardly found any governance in the state as crimes against women were steadily going up and the state failed to attract any investment.
The state was steadily going downhill for lack of political will and policies and programmes for development on the part of the government, the Left leader alleged. "It is very difficult to understand if any government is running in the state, rather it's a club. It is better to speak less and less about the functioning of the government," Bhattacharjee said.

He alleged that attacks against women had surpassed all records and observed this could have been arrested had there been any political will on the part of the ruling coalition.

"Attempt to shield any crime or disruption of law and order is due to lack of political will of the government", Bhattacharjee observed.

"Infosys is yet to decide on investment, while there was no proposal for investment in the steel sector after the agreement with Jindal's for a big one at Salboni. Not a single employment opportunity has been created in IT sector during last one year," Bhattacharjee said. "With poor people in the villages losing jobs and the workers having no emloyment opportunity, the progress of the state is under tremendous pressure," he said.

The CPI(M) leader stressed the need for getting back into the fold the section of people, who had lost faith in the Left parties "due to our mistakes", to counter this 'dangerous' government.

Observing that socialism was the last word in the world, Bhattacharjee wondered how capitalists like the US, which failed to manage itself, would help Indian economy recover.
Even President Pranab Mukherjee in his speech had admitted that the trickle down theory had failed to work in India, he said.
"I don't know if it is criticism or self-criticism, but the fact is that appeasing a handful of rich could never bring welfare to the state," he said.
