Here is a verbatim transcript of the exclusive interview with Amit Mitra on CNBC-TV18. Also watch the accompanying video.

Q: I am no longer going to introduce you as the secretary general of FICCI, will it be the finance minister of West Bengal?

A: No, that is absolutely not right. I have honestly come into this stray because there was a tectonic shift that I could see under the leadership of Mamata Banerjee. The election commission played a stellar role in giving us, people the opportunity, the common people of West Bengal to express their grievances, which has been muscled. There was complete a non-vote structure or what was called engineered and balanced surfing for so many years. We finally got a chance. I can tell you I made 26 complaints to the observer, everything was settled within ten minutes of being told. Mamata Banerjee has taken away the fear from the people.
