The ruling Left Front today alleged that the Trinamool Congress was acting as a front outfit of Maoists in West Bengal while the UPA government had chosen to remain silent on the issue.


"Trinamool Congress is forming various committees to aid the banned CPI(Maoist) in creating lawlessness and anarchy in West Bengal," Left Front Chairman Biman Bose alleged.

Bose, the state secretary of the CPI(M), claimed that the UPA government was aware of the anarchy being created by the Trinamool Congress, but was sitting tight over it. "It is unfortunate that the Centre is silent."

He also raised the issue of alleged illegal appointments by Railways under Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee.

"The real face of the symbol of honesty is exposed in the illegal appointments in Metro Railway about which our party leader Basudeb Acharia highlighted yesterday," he said.

Acharia, president of Railway Contractors Labour Union (West Bengal), a unit of the CPI(M)'s labour arm CITU had yesterday alleged that the Metro Railway appointed 123 people illegally in Group-D post.

"Their only qualification seems to be that they are either Trinamool Congress or Congress supporters."
