Congress-Trinamool reach accord, 65 seats for congress


After a series of negotiations and chit-chats, Congress and Trinamool have almost completed their seat sharing deal as Congress agreed on contesting 65 of the seats while Mamata’s Trinamool will be contesting on 229 seats for the upcoming West Bengal Assembly elections.

As per report of the sources, the top brass of the congress party including President Sonia Gandhi met today at New Delhi and emphasizing on the importance of alliance in the state agreed to 65 seats allocated to congress.

While speaking to media, All India Congress Committee General Secretary in charge of West Bengal said that an alliance between Trinamool and Congress has been finalized and he appealed to all the people of West Bengal and Congressmen to work for the success of alliance.

Mr. Ahmed further said that the people of Bengal have been relieved as the Left rule in the state finally ended and assured people that the present alliance will increase the possibility of fulfilling people’s aspirations.

Ahmed said. Congress initially had demanded 90 seats but Trinamool was not ready to give more than 45 but finally negotiation settled on 65.

Earlier on Friday, Mamata Banerjee had announced the list of 228 Trinamool candidates and left 64 seats for the congress and another 2 for the Socialist Unity Centre of India (SUCI).

The polling will start in six phases and will kick start from April 18.
