Instead of TMC, Make Alliance with Left Parties; Bengal Congress
Written by Abhishek Lohia

Preparations for the general elections to be held in 2019 have already started. The Opposition is going to make a Big Alliance to stop Modi Magic and BJP all over the country. But in West Bengal, it seems to be shattered before it becomes a great alliance. The Bengal Congress has demanded from its high command to combine with the Left parties instead of making an alliance with TMC. West Bengal Congress General Secretary OP Mishra has said that he has sent a report on this matter to the party high command on June 13. Now we all are waiting for the answer.

This Bengal Congress is not an emphasis on the general elections to be held in 2019 but it has also been said that how can the Trinamool Congress win power in 2021? According to some media reports, Congress leaders in Bengal are in favor of the formation of government in the alliance with the CPI (M).

Last month, West Bengal Congress President Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary had said that we will organize all Non-TMC and non-BJP parties in the state. We have taken this decision after meeting with the Congress legislators and district officials in the state. With this, OP Mishra was asked to make a plan for this. And after this, the meeting report had been sent to Delhi.

The 21 suggestions have been sent to the Congress high command in Delhi. And in these suggestions, Adhir Ranjan urged the high-command to open Central Office of Congress in the districts of Kolkata, Asansol, Bahrampur, and Siliguri. Simultaneously, One more request has been urged to prepare Facebook page, Twitter handle, 50 thousand volunteers for the political front. All these suggestions have been sent to Delhi and it will be implemented by October 2018.

In Congress report, it has said that the claim of increasing the vote share in BJP’s state is not entirely correct. It’s artificial, not organic. BJP got 17.2 percent votes in the 2014 elections. This was the BJP’s best performance so far. In the 2016 assembly elections, Congress and Left occupied total 39 percent of the votes, while the BJP’s vote percentage fell from the Lok Sabha stats.
