West Bengal Assembly Election 2021: Big Crowd At Left, Congress, ISF Kolkata Rally, Seat-Sharing Not Final
After a decade of losing power, the Left Front, in alliance with the Congress and the newly formed Indian Secular Front (ISF) on Sunday projected itself as a "third alternative force" in the emerging Trinamool Congress versus BJP political binary in West Bengal, but chinks were evident in the nascent alliance.
The Left-Congress-ISF alliance kicked off its campaign for the upcoming assembly elections in West Bengal with a mega rally at the Brigade Parade Ground in Kolkata.
At the rally, leaders of the CPI(M)-headed Left Front called for "knocking out the communal Trinamool and the BJP, and stressed the need for a third alternative to provide a "Janhit Sarkar" (people's welfare government) to ensure employment generation and usher in industrial development in the state.
State Congress president Adhir Chowdhury said that the grand alliance of the Left-Congress and other secular forces won't let the West Bengal assembly elections to be a two-cornered contest and would defeat both the ruling Trinamool Congress and the opposition BJP.
