BJP's policy of hatred has destroyed the country

A. Struggle has been a part and parcel of my life. After my father died, we faced hardship but never asked anybody for help. We were self-sufficient. Student life taught me a lesson - never bow down your head, be straightforward and bold in whatever you do. Then I faced 34 years of Left misrule, their torture. If you see my health reports, I've been operated on five to six times, from my brain to my belly to my hands to my eyes. I was about to die so many times. It was only my spirit [that kept me alive]. I was never scared, never afraid.

Q. So was defeating the CPI(M) the hardest of those struggles?

A. We fought them for 34 years, right from our student life. Even now, when we are in government, we are dealing with the effects of Left misrule. In the seven years of my government, we have paid Rs 2,14,000 crore to service the debt [they left behind]. Now how do we run the government, do social work, developmental work? The Centre has not given us any support. We have said so many times that this is not our fault, it is the legacy [we inherited]. Restructure the debt, at least give us some scope to repay. But they are not taking any action. This year, too, we had to pay Rs 47,700 crore as interest. We want to develop the state, but we are not getting any cooperation from the Centre. Because we do not support them, they are not doing anything for us.
