Kolkata: Ex CPM leader and the Speaker of LokSabha, Somnath Chatterjee will not be coming back to the party. The statement was cleared by the southpaw on Tuesday. Citing health issues and some other family problems, Somnath Chatterjee said that he will not be making a comeback to the Left Party. The veteran leader had been expelled from the party in July 2008 for refusing to quit the Speaker’s post as the Left withdrew support to the UPA government over the Indo-US nuclear deal. In the last two weeks, Sitaram  Yechury’s second meeting with Mr Chatterjee had sparked up rumours of him returning to the party. But on Tuesday, Somnath Chatterjee himself washed away all such speculation.
