Speaking on the tie-up CNN-IBN and IBN 7 director marketing and online projects Dilip Venkatraman said, "CNN-IBN in joining hands with The Telegraph and the Ananda Bazaar Patrika Group of publications has created a powerful alliance to bring viewers and readers a short, but riveting series analysing the Left Front government's performance since the past 30 years. I am confident this partnership will prove beneficial to all parties and pave the way for other such endeavours in the future."

"This partnership has meant the merging of both editorial and marketing resources between the media brands, which has translated into in-depth coverage on the left front rule in the state on the occasion of their 30th anniversary. We are delighted to have worked with CNN-IBN on this initiative," added The Telegraph president Amitabha Datta.

"To complete 30 years of rule in a single state is by no means a small feat. Lal Salaam at 30 is our recognition of this milestone while simultaneously analysing the corollary of the same," said CNN-IBN and IBN 7 editor-in-chief Rajdeep Sardesai.
