New Delhi, April 11 (IANS) CPI-M leader Sitaram Yechury said Thursday that West Bengal Governor M.K. 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 told reporters.

Banerjee and her Finance Minister Amit Mitra were Tuesday heckled by activists of the Students Federation of India, the students wing of the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M), when she went to the Planning Commission office in Delhi for a meeting.

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.
