THE trinamool Congress (TMC) on Wednesday appealed to the Congress and the Left Front to assist Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in West Bengal in opposition to the “communal and divisive tactics of the BJP” within the upcoming Assembly elections.
With the Assembly election simply months away, a number of frontline get together leaders and ministers resigned from TMC and joined the BJP. It is on this state of affairs that the TMC has reached out to the Left events and the Congress – which can be forging a separate coalition in opposition to TMC and BJP – to assist the ruling get together to defeat the “communal and divisive force, BJP.”
Saugata Roy stated that TMC chief Mamata Banerjee was the “real face of secular politics”. Roy additionally claimed that the BJP-led authorities on the Centre had not been in a position to work on any mission efficiently.
“If the Left Front and the Congress are genuinely anti-BJP, they should support Mamata Banerjee in her fight against the communal and divisive politics of the saffron party,” he stated.
However, each the CPM and the Congress rejected the TMC’s enchantment. At a joint press convention addressed by CPM chief Sujan Chakraborty and Congress chief Abdul Mannan, Chakraborty stated, “The TMC has no spine to fight against a communal force like the BJP. The TMC never wants to fight against BJP and the BJP also never wanted to fight against TMC. Today’s appeal only proved that, in this state, Congress and Left Front coalition is the only alternative to the TMC and BJP.”
“Only a few days ago, TMC leaders were saying that Left and Congress have become signboards. Now, they are asking for support. That means they have realised that their politics became irrelevant,” Mannan stated.
