CPI-M not to forge alliance with Cong in West Bengal


New Delhi: Rejecting the West Bengal state unit’s demand, the CPI(M) Central Committee has decided not to form an alliance with the Congress in West Bengal.

The party, however, has directed the West Bengal state unit to do efforts to bring down the Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress government in the Assembly election.

“There will not be any political alliance with the Congress in West Bengal,” a central committee member told Madhyamam Online.

The West Bengal state committee of the CPI (M) had decided to join hands with Congress in the coming Assembly election and left it for the Central Committee to ratify the move.
