Mamta, Yechury, Rahul and Kharge.
After Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, now CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechury and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee have increased the tension of Congress. There has already been an uproar over the statement given by Akhilesh Yadav and Nitish Kumar regarding the India alliance and now CPI(M) General Secretary Sitaram Yucheri has clearly said that the Left party in Bengal will not contest elections with Trinamool Congress. In such a situation, it is not possible for Congress, TMC and Left party to come together in Bengal in the Lok Sabha elections.
The latest example of this has also been seen in the Telangana Assembly elections. While the Congress refused to give the seats demanded by the Left in the Telangana Assembly elections, the CPI(M) alone has declared candidates on 17 seats. There is no agreement between Congress and CPI(M) in Telangana.
Now a similar situation is emerging in Bengal also. TMC is ready to leave only two seats to Congress, while does not want to give even a single seat to the Left. Neither Congress nor the Left is ready to accept this. In such a situation, difficulties seem to be increasing regarding alliance in Bengal.
TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee is also not very enthusiastic about the alliance in Bengal. It is believed that Mamata Banerjee is also becoming disillusioned with the alliance due to the recent attitude of Congress.
There will be no compromise with TMC in Bengal – Yechury
Recently, CPM General Secretary had taken a dig at Bengal’s ruling party TMC and said, Trinamool is an undemocratic and corrupt government. This party was never an alternative to BJP. This can never happen. There is a need for alternative politics to remove BJP and RSS and RSS has a political goal.
Sitaram Yechury said, “There is no objection if Trinamool comes into INDIA alliance and fights with us. The Left party and its allies can become an alternative. The public will answer for how long they will remain at the grassroots level or not. Even if there is an agreement with BJP, people will respond to it.
On the question of seat sharing in the state, Sitaram Yechury said, “We are in INDIA alliance and so is Congress. Our big election fight in Kerala is with Congress. But it has no effect on the alliance. Even if TMC remains in the India alliance at the national level, there will be no compromise on seats in Bengal.”
Left-Congress together, distance is being created from TMC
At present, the political situation in Bengal is such that it is not possible for all three parties to be on one platform and Congress is also giving preference to Left instead of Trinamool Congress. Political analysts say that even before this, Left and Congress had contested elections together in Bengal and this fight was with Trinamool Congress.
Now similar equations are being formed in the Lok Sabha elections also, where Left and Congress will fight together against TMC and BJP. No matter what political equation is formed, it is clearly visible that conflict in the alliance in Bengal is certain.
