Senior leaders of the Congress and the CPI(M)-led Left Front met right here on Sunday and held discussions on seat sharing and different poll-related preparations, sources in two camps mentioned. During the 2016 state elections, too, the 2 events had stitched an alliance and bagged 76 of the 294 meeting seats.
State Congress president Adhir Chowdhury, following the assembly, mentioned talks on seat-sharing between the 2 sides are more likely to conclude by the top of the month. “We have agreed to contest the polls collectively. We had a optimistic dialogue… and there’s no disagreement…” Chowdhury, who can be the Leader of the Congress in Lok Sabha, mentioned.
Echoing him, Left Front chairman Biman Bose mentioned the 2 events will maintain extra such discussions earlier than they arrive at a choice on seat-sharing. Among others, Left Front veteran Suryakant Mishra and Congress chief Abdul Mannan had been current on the assembly.
According to the sources, the events are more likely to maintain a mega joint rally in town someday quickly. Elections to the 294-member Bengal meeting are more likely to be held in April-May.
