Asserting that they’ll collectively combat the “communal” BJP and the “fascist” Trinamool Congress in West Bengal, the Left Front and the Congress on Sunday stated that their seat-sharing association for the upcoming state meeting elections will likely be finalised by the top of this month.

Congress state chief Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury stated that his get together and the Left Front will maintain additional parleys to finalise the nitty-gritty of the deal.

Senior leaders of the 2 events held talks earlier within the day over the seat-sharing settlement.

Left Front chairman Biman Bose stated that although the BJP is the “biggest enemy of the country”, however given the scenario in West Bengal, the combat is towards each the TMC and the BJP to save lots of the state from communal strife and the “binary” that’s being created among the many individuals.

“In order to defeat the communal BJP on one hand and the fascist TMC on the other, we have to fight them together as a democratic alliance,” Mr Chowdhury, chief of the grand previous get together within the Lok Sabha, stated at a joint press convention of the Left Front and the Congress.

He stated that the parleys between his get together and the Left Front are being held in a cordial and pleasant environment.

Endorsing Mr Chowdhury’s views, Mr Bose stated that meeting constituency-wise checklist of seats to be fought by every get together will likely be finalised inside January.

“We, the Left and the Congress, want to fight the elections shoulder to shoulder in order to save the people of the state and the country,” Mr Basu stated.

He stated that there isn’t any misunderstanding between the Left Front and the Congress on seat sharing.


Asked in regards to the TMC’s solutions to the 2 events to hitch arms with them to combat the BJP, Mr Bose stated that it was the Mamata Banerjee-led get together that has given the BJP a foot-hold in West Bengal.

“It (the suggestion) is an attempt by the TMC to mislead the people of the state,” he stated.

The two events are prone to maintain a mega joint rally in Kolkata someday quickly, sources stated.

Elections to the 294-member state meeting are due in April-May.

During the 2016 meeting elections, too, the 2 events had stitched an alliance and bagged 76 seats.

However, through the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the 2 events had fought individually and whereas the Congress gained two seats, the Left Front, which dominated the state from 1977-2011, drew a clean.
