Cong MP, MLA meet Partha Chatterjee: ‘Talked about possible alliance with Trinamool’
Sparking speculation of a possible defection, Congress MP from Maldaha Dakshin constituency Abu Hasem Khan Choudhury and the party’s Farakka MLA Mainul Haque met TMC secretary general Partha Chatterjee at his residence in Kolkata Wednesday.
Both Congress leaders claimed they had gone to meet Chatterjee to talk about the possibility of a “Congress-TMC alliance in West Bengal to defeat the BJP”. “We have come here to talk about a grand alliance. We want to have an alliance with the TMC to defeat the BJP,” Choudhury told reporters after his visit. Haque echoed his views.
