Congress didn't try to reach me: Mamata

Denying that the Congress tried to reach her on economic reforms, Trinamool leader Mamata Banerjee Wednesday accused some news channels of spreading misinformation.

"I must make it clear that there has been no effort from the Congress to reach me. A section of negligible channels is spreading misinformation and disinformation at the behest of vested interests," she told the media.

Railway Minister Mukul Roy also rubbished reports that the Congress leadership tried to contact Banerjee through him on the issue of economic reforms that forced the Trinamool to quit the UPA Tuesday.

"As a cabinet minister I have often interacted with the prime minister but regarding this issue I have never been communicated by the prime minister to tell or communicate anything to our party supremo. This is very clear," said Roy.
