WEST Bengal Congress President Soumen Mitra   has made it public that there is no possibility of electoral alliance with the Left Front in the eastern state. Congress will contest all 42 Lok Sabha seats in the state on its own. ‘Due to the unyielding behaviour of CPI (M) and its allies, we are calling off the proposed seat sharing in the state and have decided to fight BJP and Trinamool Congress in Bengal with our own force,’ said Mitra  ( in  the picture  above  by ANI).The  announcement followed two days after the Left Front announced its candidates for  25 seats out of 42 Lok Sabha seats in West Bengal. “Left Front announced its candidates in 25 Lok Sabha seats in West Bengal on March 15 without any discussion with West Bengal Congress. Due to the unyielding behaviour of CPI (M) and its ally parties in the Left Front, we are calling off the proposed seat sharing in the state and have decided to fight BJP and Trinamool Congress in Bengal with our own force. The CPI (M)-led Left Front in West Bengal on Friday released a list of 25 candidates in the state for the Lok Sabha elections. The 25 seats include Raiganj and Murshidabad, currently held by CPI(M). The party had declared its candidates for these constituencies earlier. Out of 25 seats, CPI (M) has fielded its candidates on 15 seat.Left Front chairman Biman Basu  said that the remaining 17 constituencies would be contested either by the Left Front or the Congress. Last month, Mitra ruled out any possibility of an alliance with the Trinamool Congress for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls stating that nobody from the party, including its workers, wanted an alliance with TMC.Presently, there are four Congress Lok Sabha Members of Parliament in West Bengal. State  Congress  has  alleged  that the  ruling TMC  is destroying  the political outfit opposing any tie-up  with Mamata  Banerjee  led TMC.
