New Delhi : Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee on Saturday dismissed as figment of imagination reports that he is going to West Bengal to seek a clarification from

Mamata Banerjee on her speech in Maoist dominated Lalgarh which had raised hackles of the Opposition.

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. PTI
