West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee on Tuesday said that he would not keep silent if a bandh was called by his party CPI-M.
"I do not support any bandh but at the same time, I am member of a political party. So long I have kept mum. But now I will speak out," he said here at an Assocham interactive session when asked about his reaction on state-sponsored bandhs.
On the issue of gherao, the Marxist leader said it was definitely illegal.
"We will not allow gherao-type agitation to take place in West Bengal," the chief minister said.
