Mamata slams media on Facebook for spreading 'rumours', 'misinformation'

Kolkata: Sticking to her decision to pull out from the UPA government, Trinamool Congress (TMC) chief Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday said a section of channels were spreading "misinformation" and "trying to create confusion".

"If I have something new to say, then I will let you know directly. I will reiterate that we have taken a decision, which is of the people, for the people and by the people and also pro-people. We stand by it," Banerjee said in her latest post on Facebook.

"Again a section of negligible channels is spreading misinformation and disinformation at the behest of certain vested interests," she said. "Always I have noticed that, whenever a strong stand is taken for the cause of the common people, such section tries to malign and create confusion. It is better not to trust such rumours, gossips and planted news," the West Bengal Chief Minister said.

Mamata further wrote that the Trinamool Congress stood by its decision to withdraw from the UPA.

Trinamool Congress, the second biggest constituent of the UPA, on Tuesday dealt a major blow to the Manmohan Singh government when it decided to withdraw support on the issue of FDI in retail, diesel price hike, cap on subsidised LPG cylinders and corruption. She had said that party ministers in the UPA government would meet the prime minister in Delhi and submit their resignations at 3:00 pm on Friday, but left the doors open for a possible rapprochement in the next three days.
