Trinamool stoops to Congress; agree for 68 seats

Mamata Banerjee and Pranab Mukherjee
Kolkata, Mar 16: To a breather to the leaders of Congress and its ally in West Bengal - Trinamool, the long pending deadlock is over now. Both parties were engaged in a spat over seat-sharing issue ahead of crucial West Bengal assembly elections.

Sources informed that both Congress and Trinamool agreed for 68 seats. Previously, Trinamool was ready to give 65 seats out of 294 seats but the Congress demanded more.

The logjam between the two parties reached to the worst position when some Trinamool leaders hinted to break the alliance with Congress.

Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee and Trinamool vhief Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday, Mar 15 met but left without any fruitful results.

Finally, Wednesday proved as the lucky day for both Congress and Trinamool. It seems that Trinamool had tried its best to save the alliance as it stooped to Congress.
