Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Saturday lashed out at West Bengal's ruling Left Front for its "poor governance" and the lack of employment and appealed to people to "give a chance" to the Congress-Trinamool Congress alliance.
"I appeal to the masses to give the Congress-Trinamool alliance a chance to govern the state. The people of the state have given the chance to the Left Front to rule for 34 years. But the time of change has come. Sonia Gandhi has given me this message that Congress-Trinamool be given a chance," Manmohan Singh said at an election rally in Burdwan district.
