Trinamool Congress will win at least 250 seats in the upcoming Assembly elections, said Suvendu Adhikari, Tamluk MP in a party meeting at Shyampukur. Kolkata Mayor Shovan Chatterjee, Bidhannagar mayor Sabyasachi Dutta, MP Sudip Bandhopadhyay, Nayana Banerjee, councillor, Chowringhee, Dola Sen and other party members were present there.
Adhikari stated: “Trinamool Congress is ready to be voted as the ruling party in West Bengal for the second year running. He also said that no amount of alliance between opposing parties will have any effect on the results of the poll.
“The CPI(M) have lost all their powers in West Bengal. They are almost extinct in the state. They have also lost any sense of direction, so they are using the media to keep their existence alive. The people who are pointing fingers at the ruling party about the recent rape cases, they should know that in the CPI(M) regime there have also been crimes against women.”
Adhikari also gave the example of Nandigram and said that the common people would never want history to repeat itself and said that there is no way that the Left party would ever come to power in West Bengal. Sovan Chatterjee also called for development of the state from the same dais. He also stated that no strategy of the opposing party would work against the ruling party.
Talking about the impending Congress-CPI(M) tie-up Sashi Panja, MP, Shyampukur said that if the alliance is made, it will prove that Congress is a B team. She also stated that in order to win the election the Congress might just forget every earlier political rivalry with the CPI(M) and tie-up with the Left party. Panja stated that the most valuable arrow TMC have in their quiver against the opposition is development and that is the point that should spearhead the campaign for the upcoming Assembly elections.
