West Bengal Polls: Congress To Finalise Seat-Sharing With Left By January End

Kolkata: As West Bengal Assembly polls are inching closer and BJP and Trinamool Congress are utilising every day to intensify political slugfest, the third front in the state — Congress-Left alliance — is in the process to wind-up the seat-sharing formula by end of this month, as per IANS.
According to reports by the news agency, Congress in-charge for West Bengal, Jitin Prasada, confirmed that four leaders have been deputed to hold talks on seat sharing with the Left parties in the state.
“We have nominated Abdul Mannan, Pradeep Bhattacharya, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury and Nepal Mahata to hold talks with the Left leaders,” said Prasada.
Prasada said that the Left and the Congress will fight both the fronts. “When it comes to Mamata Banerjee, law and order is a big issue whereas the BJP wants to erase Bengali heritage and history,” Prasada told IANS.
According to a survey published by the news agency on Saturday portrayed that the satisfaction level with Banerjee has remained high despite aggressive campaigning by the BJP in the state. As per the survey, 52 per cent of the people are satisfied with Banerjee’s performance. This is despite the fact that the BJP has become very visible in West Bengal.
The Left and the Congress, on the other hand, are banking on exchange of votes. But last time the Congress did better than the Left as the latter was able to transfer votes to the Congress candidates but the vice versa could not take place.
Currently, the elections are quite important for the Congress because after losing Madhya Pradesh to an internal coup, a substantial loss would further demoralise the party cadres.
