Accusing the Congress of being hand in glove with the CPI (M), West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today said her party would perform much better in the next Assembly election in the state.
“We have to do much better than last time (2011 Assembly polls). We will do better than last time. Last time we had won less seats as Congress was with us. The Congress won so many seats because of the alliance with us. After that for last five years they have been hand in glove with the CPI-M,” Banerjee said here.
“Let them forge an unholy alliance. We’re with the people and have forged alliance with the masses. In democracy, people have the last word,” she said.
The Congress and the CPI (M) are tipped to enter into an alliance before the coming Assembly election.
After the CPI(M)’s central committee meeting earlier this month, it had said it’d seek cooperation of all “democratic forces to strengthen people’s unity in West Bengal to defeat Trinamool Congress”.
This has been interpreted as an indication to enter into some kind of understanding with the Congress.
