The Left announced its first list of candidates on Monday (March 7).

The Congress, however, was not impressed with the Left's announcing six candidates in Murshidabad district (13 in total), a stronghold of the former. State Congress chief Adhir Chowdhury said whatever the decision the Left has taken is their own but they couldn't impose a decision on the Congress.
