" Averring that no one is untouchable in politics, Banerjee Friday said her Trinamool would consider and discuss the matter if a proposal for a tie-up came from her long-time foe CPI-M. "
Kolkata, Aug 31 - Describing West Bengal's ruling Trinamool Congress as a party full of antisocials, CPI-M veteran Buddhadeb Bhattcharjee Sunday ruled out any kind of talks with the Mamata Banerjee-led party.

Bhattcharjee's comments come in the wake of his Chief Minister Banerjee opining that she was not averse to the idea of tying up with the Communist Party of India-Marxist to counter the Bharatiya Janata Party.

Talks with the Trinamool... never, a party which is top to bottom full of anti-socials, a party which is destroying the state.

It has finished off law and order, industry, culture, morality, Trinamool is destroying everything. There can never be any talks with them. We will see them only in the battle ground, Bhattcharjee said at a party programme here.

Earlier in the day, Left Front chairman and party state secretary Biman Bose too had ruled out any truck with the Trinamool.

Trinamool pursues soft communal politics; we will never have any kind of talks with a party which has been destroying the state through its politics, Bose told media persons.

Averring that no one is untouchable in politics, Banerjee Friday said her Trinamool would consider and discuss the matter if a proposal for a tie-up came from her long-time foe CPI-M.

While Left Front including partners the Forward Bloc and RSP have rejected the idea of an alliance with the Trinamool, the BJP has ridiculed Banerjee saying her statement was an acknowledgment of the party's surge in the state
