Mamata Banerjee files poll papers in West BengalApril 22nd, 2009 - 6:49 pm ICT by IANS
Kolkata, April 22 (IANS) Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee Wednesday filed her nomination papers from the Kolkata-South constituency in West Bengal for the Lok Sabha elections.
Mamata was accompanied by senior Trinamool leaders Partha Chattopadhyay, Kalyan Banerjee, Sovan Deb Chattapadhyay and nearly 300-odd supporters.
West Bengal’s ruling Left Front (LF) supported Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) candidate Robin Deb also filed his nomination from Kolkata-South constituency.
“I am sure this time the people of Kolkata-South constituency will elect the LF candidate and will help us to form a non-Congress and non-Bharatiya Janata Party government at the centre,” Deb told reporters after filing his papers.
Terming Trinamool Congress as “opportunistic”, Deb said, “People will reject Trinamool Congress, which has formed an unholy alliance with various separatist forces in the state.”
