KOLKATA: West Bengal Pradesh Congress president Adhir Chowdhury argued for Congress-Left ties in a meeting with Left leaders on Tuesday to present a “viable alternative” to BJP and Trinamool before the public before it became too late.
Chowdhury urged Left Front leaders to leave behind “past acrimonies” and roll out a plan to hold joint programmes and electoral adjustments for “mutual benefit”.
Left Front leaders, on the other hand, tabled a list of proposed joint programmes, such as a joint rally with Congress on November 23 in support of the all-India strike on November 26, a joint rally in defence of secularism on December 6, and a peace rally in North 24 Parganas’ Hajinagar on November 22.
There was no discussion on the seat-sharing formula. None from Congress initiated a proposal on who should be the CM face for the combine in the upcoming polls though Congress chief whip in the West Bengal assembly Manoj Chakraborty has been floating Chowdhury’s name as the “CM face” for the third front.
