He said All India Congress Committee (AICC) secretaries Nitin Raut, Dr Shakeel Uz Jamal Ansari, Siddharta Patel, R C Kuntia and Mabel Rabello would visit five zones of the state to assess the ground situation in the state from February 28.

Discussions with Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee for grand alliance was on and the party hopes of a positive outcome, Mr Bhuniya said, adding that his party is seeking an alliance with a secular, progressive and democratic party.
