Buddhadeb does not rule out supporting Congress after pollsMarch 29th, 2009 - 9:58 pm ICT by IANS
Siliguri, March 29 (IANS) West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee Sunday said the possibility of the Left supporting a Congress-led government at the centre after the coming Lok Sabha elections cannot be ruled out, but that would depend on the post-election scenario.
“Now our attempt is to form a non-Congress and non-Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government at the centre,” Bhattacharjee told reporters after a party conference in northern West Bengal’s Siliguri town.
Asked whether the Left will support the Congress at the centre, he said: “No, but it depends on the post-election situation. Let the elections get over first.”
Bhattacharjee was on a two-day visit to northern Bengal to canvass for Left Front candidates.
