After formally taking charge of the West Bengal Pradesh Congress, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi on February 15 hinted at his party’s growing ambitions in Bengal and the high command’s vision beyond the 2009 elections in the state. The new PCC chief painted a vivid picture of the Congress agenda that would focus on Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee Government’s failure to implement rural development projects for the Muslims.
According to a report, the new PCC chief criticised the Left Government for not improving the condition of the minority community. “I will read from every page of the Sachar Committee Report that has explained the poor condition of Muslims in Bengal,” he added. Referring to the rising regionalism in the country, Dasmunsi was clear in his view that Bengal would never allow any regional movement in the State. He however did not name any particular state.
