Kolkata, Oct 25 (UNI) West Bengal BJP vice-president Sabyasachi Bagchi today announced that the party would contest the coming Lok Sabha election alone in the state.
''We are expecting a surprise result in the coming Parliamentary election and the party has already identified the candidates for 24, including two in Kolkata, out of 42-seats. The rest will be decided in the party's next election committee meeting, to be held here on October 31,'' Mr Bagchi told newspersons here.
He said the BJP's state leaders would fan out to every district and focus on the ''failures'' of the CPI(M)-led Left Front government in the state.
He said, ''After Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee had announced to fight the election alone, we have also decided to contest on our own. But we are ready if Ms Banerjee wants to discuss about any alliance with us.'' UNI AKM KK RD RL BD1817
