Adhir Chowdhury is ready to alliance with CPIM in Kolkata, Adhir Chowdhury said that West Bengal Congress is prepared to field a candidate for the Bhabanipur assembly bypoll against Mamata Banerjee.
WB Congress desired to alliance with Left Front for a by-poll in Bhawanipur. It has no intention to merge with ISF, Pradesh Congress chief Adhir Chowdhury revealed after an internal meeting.
Adhir Chowdhury said while speaking to media persons that the determination will be judged by AICC in Delhi. We have sent our proposal.
Adhir mentioned that the Left-Congress alliance wants to field a candidate against Mamata Banerjee in Bhawanipur. Thus, he had earlier stated that the party will escape from contesting from the seat.
“After discussing with party members, we have chosen to contest the seat. We will leave the Samserganj and Jangipur seats to the Left Front and support them in crusades,” Chowdhury said, Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha.
The Congress will manoeuvre for the two seats in Samserganj and Jangipur if Left Front fields its candidates.
Both Congress and Left Front have cut off their ties with ISF after its recent election defeat in the recently held assembly polls in Bengal.
The bypoll will be held on September 30 along with the elections to two seats in the Murshidabad district — Samserganj and Jangipur where polling could not be done throughout the eight-phase assembly elections earlier this year.
