Bengal polls: Cracks in Trinamool; Didi eyes on Congress

Mamata Banerjee
Kolkata, Mar 21: Trinamool chief Mamata Banerjee must be minutely observing Congress' moves today (Monday, Mar 21) as the deadline given by her party reached to its end. But it's not only Sonia Gandhi, who is facing the election tiff, Mamata Banerjee also has experienced the election heat ahead of the assembly polls in West Bengal.

On Friday, Mar 18, Mamata announced candidates list without Congress' consent. Didi declared her list of 228 candidates leaving 64 seats for Congress. Mamata's decision disappointed Congress including her own party workers.

When top leaders of Trinamool and Congress were busy in handling the seat-sharing spat between the two parties, many Trinamool Congress expressed their rage against the party chief over distributing seats.

On Sunday, Mar 20, Trinamul Congress activists from three districts demonstrated in front of Mamata's home in Kolkata to protest the choice of some party candidates announced by her.

Trinamool workers showed protest over Mamata's decision allotting some seats to some "outsiders" like actor Chiranjeet and many others. Accepting some new election strategy to mar CPI(M) rein in the state, Mamata this time fielded several apolitical persons from different walks of life.

Citing the protest by its own party workers, Trinamool sources informred that the party chief soon may be forced to re-consider few of the nominees.

Meanwhile, Sonia Gandhi, after the meeting with finance minister Pranab Mukherjee and other senior leaders, is expected to table Congress' final decision over 64 seats offered by Trinamool.

It seems that Monday is going to be a big day for Trinamool and as well as for Trinamool as the day will decide the future of the alliance.
