The West Bengal Congress unit is distressed with CPM as both the parties are eager on Contesting Raiganj and Murshidabad Lok Sabha constituencies. The trouble is leading to checkmate in seat-sharing talks for the upcoming elections between them.
The Raiganj and Murshidabad parliamentary seats are detained by the CPI(M). The CPI(M) has left only these two seats in West Bengal.
A senior Congress leader told, “We want to contest in those two seats. Raiganj and Murshidabad have always been the stronghold of the Congress. The CPI(M) won them in 2014 due to the four-cornered contest.”
On the other hand, CPI(M) does not want to hand over the seats. Mohammed Salim the MP from Raiganj and Badaruddoza Khan the MP from Murshidabad are eager to contest the seats again this time.
A senior CPI(M) leader said that “These two are our seats. If we let go these seats it will have a negative impact on the morale of party cadres.”
Last week two leaders of Congress, Pradip Bhattacharya, and Abdul Mannan had a long interaction with CPM leader Sujan Chakraborty and Rabin Deb over seat sharing.
Within next week, state unit president Somen Mitra and CPI(M) state secretary Surya Kanta Mishra may sit for discussion, said Congress sources.
The Congress, sources said, wants to competition around 20 of the state’s 42 Lok Sabha seats, and the Left Front, which has to distribute seats among its constituents, is keen on fielding candidates in at least 26-28 seats.
