Trinamool invites Buddhadeb to swearing-in ceremony
Deputy leader of the Trinamool Congress legislature party Partha Chatterjee met Bhattacharjee at his Palm Avenue residence here and invited him for tomorrow`s ceremony.
Chatterjee invited both Bhattacharjee and his wife Meera Bhattacharjee to the inauguration of the new council of ministers.
The visit to Bhattacharjee`s residence was the first by any Trinamool leader since the party came into being in 1998.
Chatterjee, who told reporters he had gone to Bhattacherjee`s residence as directed by Mamata Banerjee, said, "We will do our work showing due courtesy to all."
On Tuesday, Chief Minister-designate Mamata Banerjee herself went to expelled CPI-M leader and former Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee`s residence here to invite him for the swearing-in ceremony.
A senior Left Front leader and RSP central committee member Manoj Bhattacharjee said, "I appreciate the good gesture, but I feel this is not enough. This humility should also be present in the party`s grassroot level."
The RSP leader observed development programmes could be best implemented if `disturbances in civil society` were take care of.
