Pranab on get well visit to Mamata

New Delhi, August 14: The Union Minister Pranab Mukherjee on Saturday dismissed the speculations that he is going to West Bengal to seek clarification from Mamata Banerjee on her Lalgarh speech.

Mukherjee told reporters that he would meet the Trinamool Congress leader to enquire about her health as she had fallen sick.

“Whatever is appearing is absolutely figment of Imagination I am going to meet Mamata Banerjee because after the Lalgarh rally, she became sick and doctors have advised her to take rest. I am going to meet her only in that connection,” the senior Congress leader said.

Mukherjee said, “neither I am going to carry red card, green card or yellow card, nor I have been directed or mandated by somebody.”

He said there should be “some responsibility in providing news to viewers and readers. It cannot be in the domain of imagination.”

BJP and the Left parties had joined hands in Parliament to corner the government on the Railway Minister’s speech at her rally at Lalgarh on Monday in which she had condemned the killing of Maoist leader Cherukuri Rajkumar alias Azad in an encounter in Andhra Pradesh.
