Trinamool not to ally with Congress in TripuraJune 12th, 2011 - 3:43 pm ICT by IANS
Agartala, June 12 (IANS) The Trinamool Congress will not form any alliance with the main opposition Congress in Tripura to fight against the Left Front government, party leaders said here Sunday.
The Trinamool Congress-Congress coalition successfully fought the Left Front in West Bengal assembly elections and wrested power last month.
“Congress has no reliability in Tripura. People also have no confidence with the party. Their internal feud is never-ending,” Tripura Trinamool leader Manik Deb told reporters here.
“During the previous elections, Congress told the people that they are comning to power, but they failed miserably. Trinamool Congress on its own strength will come to power in the 2013 assembly polls,” Deb said.
According to Deb, many Congress leaders, former ministers and legistors are willing to join the Trinamool after the West Bengal poll verdict.
“We would accept those Congress leaders into Trinamool Congress who has clean image and are dedicated to work for the people,” party leader Arun Chandra Bhowmik said.
Over 1,000 Congress and other party members have joined Trinamool Congress in Tripura after the West Bengal assembly election results in May, he added.
The Congress has, however, rejected the Trinamool accusation.
“It would help the ruling Left Front if the opposition parties do not form any alliance or do not fight unitedly against the Left parties,” Congress spokesman Tapas Dey told reporters.
“Congress is the main political force in Tripura. How can the smaller parties ignore the Congress,” Dey asked.
The Congress Sunday organised a day-long sit-in across Tripura to protest the alleged “misrule of the Left Front government.”
