Abhishek Manu Singhvi: Grateful to TMC for support in Rajya Sabha polls

Abhishek Manu Singhvi: Grateful to TMC for support in Rajya Sabha polls

At the regional level, Mamata's support for Singhvi is certain to drive a wedge between the state units of the Congress and the CPM.

The support extended to him is "based on an issue as well as time", Singhvi said.

West Bengal Pradesh Congress Committee president Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said they had tried to put up CPI (M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury for the 5th seat but the Marxist leader did not agree. Speaking to mediapersons, Patel said, "I had discussions with Mamata Banerjee today". There was a request to me (for supporting Singhvi).

Before the announcement of Mr. Sanghvi's candidature, the Congress and Left Front were in talks on putting up a joint candidate.

Mr. Sanghvi held an hour-long meeting with Congress MLAs in the State Assembly in the presence of the Leader of the Opposition, Congress's Abdul Mannan.

Mr Singhvi later said, "Whichever part or place you belong to, the arithmatic, history and geography of this state politically shows a huge anti-BJP commonality".

Kolkata: With an eye on forming an alternative front before the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Nationalist Congress Party leader Praful Patel on Friday met West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday.

Both Chowdhury and Mannan had stayed away from Singhvi's programmes in the state before state Assembly elections in 2016 as the Congress leader had been the counsel of several accused persons in Narada case.

"I do not sense any opposition here, as in at our party-level", he said.

Singhvi said he was proud to be nominated from the land of Rabindranath Tagore, Swami Vivekananda, Ramakrishna, Rammohan Roy and Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.

But with Mamata Banerjee extending support for Singhvi, his victory is confirmed since even after getting its four candidates elected, Trinamool will have excess votes to spare for the Congress candidate.
