Buddhadev on Mamata Banerjee

Mamata Banerjee, the chief minister of the state of West Bengal, has been a very polarizing figure in India, let alone in Bangladesh. Her irresponsible actions speak volumes and appear as if she has formed an alliance with communal and divisive forces within India to resist all attempts to normalizing good relationship with Bangladesh. Her predecessor, Buddhadev Bhattacharjee has criticized her innane stupidity. The CPI (M) politburo member appeared furious over Mamata Banerjee's opposition to the Teesta river water sharing that forced Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to back off from signing the agreement during his last visit to Dhaka in 2011.

"We all want good relations with Bangladesh. We don’t want communal forces and anti-India forces to thrive there. We want a secular Bangladesh friendly to India but how do we ensure that if its bonafide demands are not met," said Bhattacharjee.

“Was it really necessary to create an impasse on water sharing and enclaves? The matter could have been solved rationally,” Bhattacharjee said.
