Kolkata: CPM nominates acclaimed lawyer and former Mayor Bikash Ranjan Bhattacharya as candidate for Rajya Sabha elections. Left front Chairman Biman Basu announced the decision in a press conference on Friday.

Congress had on Thursday nominated Pradip Bhattacharya for the same.  This is a clear indication that the Left-Cong alliance will foresee a crack. Instead of supporting the Congress’s choice, CPM fielded their own candidate for the upcoming polls.

TMC has decided to support Congress’s candidate in the polls.

CPM on Tuesday decided against nominating party general secretary Sitaram Yechury for a third consecutive Rajya Sabha term, a top leader said. While most leaders from Bengal wanted him to be fielded for a third term, a majority of the members felt that Mr Yechury, who is also the CPM’s general secretary, should work to meet the challenges the party is facing.

5 TMC members filed their nominations two days back.
