New Delhi: CPI-M leader Sitaram Yechury on Thursday said that West Bengal Governor MK Narayanan was answerable for his statements criticising the Left over the heckling of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in Delhi.

"He (governor) is answerable for his statements," Yechury said. Banerjee and state Finance Minister Amit Mitra were heckled on Tuesday by activists of the Students Federation of India, the students wing of the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M), when they went to the Planning Commission office in Delhi.

The West Bengal Governor had used strong words as he expressed shock over the "pre-meditated assault" on Banerjee and the state minister in Delhi and asked the CPI-M politburo for a public apology.
