Kolkata: After holding two closed-door meetings, the Left Front and the Congress alliance had made an understanding of seat-sharing for 193 out of 294 assembly seats.

Addressing a press conference West Bengal Congress president Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said that the two parties will hold a meeting for the remaining 101 seats soon.

“The Left Front and its allied parties will contest from 101 out of 193 seats and we spoke about and the remaining 92 seats will be contested by the Congress. For the remaining seats that have not yet decided will be sorted soon,” stated Chowdhury.

Meanwhile, the Left Front and the Congress is jointly holding a rally at Brigade Parade ground on February 28.

Notably, after the first meeting between the two parties the Left Front was not happy with the decision taken by the Congress.

According to political analysts, the alliance is needed for both the parties as this alliance can give a tough fight to the ruling Trinamool Congress and the main opposition, the BJP in Bengal. The alliance of the Congress with the Left Front had given both the parties good impetus in the last parliamentary election in 2019.

However, calling the alliance a ‘flop’, TMC MP Saugata Roy said that the people of West Bengal will never vote for the alliance as all are aware of the developmental works done by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
