NEW DELHI, March 19 � Dubbing the NCTC as worse than POTA and TADA, Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee today met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to convey her reservations over the counter terrorism provision, reports PTI.
�The meeting was good,� Banerjee said when asked by reporters after the discussions with the Prime Minister for the first time after the Dinesh Trivedi issue broke out.
�There is no breaking news,� she remarked when asked whether there was any breakup or breakdown of the Trinamool Congress with the Congress-led UPA.
Banerjee also defended her party�s walk out in the Lok Sabha on the NCTC saying since the Trinamool Congress was part of the Government it can not vote against and therefore it has maintained decorum by walking out. �The NCTC is worse than TADA and POTA,� she said.
Her meeting with Prime Minister appeared to have the desired result. Mukul Roy, whom the Trinamool Congress has named as Cabinet Minister to succeed Dinesh Trivedi as Railway Minister, will be sworn-in tomorrow.
