Speaking at a party rally in Kolkata, Mamata Banerjee has confirmed that TMC will partner with Congress for the upcoming West Bengal Assembly Elections 2011.
The recent fuel price increases saw Mamata Banerjee out on the streets protesting against them. This was seen by many as an indication of her trying to move away from the scam-tainted Congress Govt at the center. However, at a rally in Kolkata she dismissed all doubts of the alliance breaking up.
People of West Bengal will have a tough time voting this year. On one hand is the 35 years of Left Front misrule which has left the state lagging behind in development works, and on the other side is the Congress and TMC, whose alliance at the center has wreaked havoc on the common man’s pocket with rising prices. A classic case of “aage kuan piche khai”.
