The Trinamool Congress is now not considering initiating recent talks with the Congress relating to the seat sharing association for the Lok Sabha polls this 12 months as a part of the INDIA bloc.

A veteran chief of the social gathering and likewise a senior member of the West Bengal Cabinet stated that the social gathering supremo and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was of the opinion that additional talks with the Congress have been ineffective on two grounds.

“The first cause is that the Congress’ demand for eight to 10 seats in West Bengal is completely absurd contemplating that the vote share of the nation’s oldest nationwide social gathering had come down to simply three per cent within the 2021 state Assembly polls.

“Without a single member in the state Assembly and just two MPs in the Lok Sabha, the demand for eight to ten seats is nothing but overreach, ” stated a state Cabinet member.

He added, “It seems that the Congress leadership is more interested in a seat-sharing agreement with the CPI(M)-led Left Front rather than with the Trinamool Congress and hence the leadership of the state’s ruling party does not find the necessity of initiating any further discussions on seat sharing with the Congress.”

Party insiders stated that Mamata Banerjee was specifically irked on receiving the data that the Congress together with the CPI(M) had taken an in-principle choice to again the lone All-India Secular Front (AISF)- candidate Naushad Siddique within the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls from Diamond Harbour constituency in South 24 Parganas district from the place the sitting MP is Trinamool Congress’ General Secretary and the Chief Minister’s nephew Abhishek Banerjee.

Recently Mamata Banerjee herself gave hints on this rely as she stated that whereas the Opposition INDIA bloc will proceed within the nationwide perspective, in West Bengal the Trinamool Congress will battle alone.

Soon after that State Congress President and veteran Lok Sabha member Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury challenged the Chief Minister to contest towards him from Baharampur Lok Sabha constituency in Murshidabad district from the place he’s a five-time MP.
