WB CPM In Dilemma To Share Platform With Rahul


Kolkata: The West Bengal CPM On Wednesday said its leaders may share stage with Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi during his campaign on Saturday for the upcoming Assembly elections in West Bengal.

“We have decided to accept the invitation of Congress party regarding joint campaign during Rahul Gandhi’s visit. A senior party leader along with respective Left Front candidates will be present on the platform in all three meetings of Rahul Gandhi on April 2,” CPI(M) state secretariat member Shyamal Chakraborty told.

According to senior Congress leaders, CPI(M) leaders’ sharing stage with Mr Gandhi during poll campaign will send out a positive message in favour of the alliance which will enhance coordination at the grassroots level.

The CPI(M) and the Congress, which have entered into an electoral pact, have organised joint rallies and unitedly campaigned for alliance candidates.
