Earlier this month, the TMC announced its list for all 42 Lok Sabha constituencies in West Bengal, shrugging off Congress's proposal for an alliance. This move signaled a shift in the political landscape of the state, with the ruling party asserting its dominance and confidence in the upcoming elections.

Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress (TMC) is in for a shock as the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is all set to outnumber the ruling party in the Lok Sabha seats. The growing support for the BJP in West Bengal has posed a significant challenge for the TMC, leading to intensified campaigning and strategizing to retain its stronghold in the state.

Kolkata: Rekindling hopes of an alliance after Lok Sabha elections, Trinamool chief and Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee on Sunday said the party is open to forming a coalition with like-minded parties to counter the threat posed by the BJP. This statement comes amidst growing concerns within the TMC about the increasing popularity of the BJP in the state.

West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee opposes CAA, warns against NRC trap, challenges BJP's Lok Sabha seat target. Her vocal opposition to the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act and National Register of Citizens has garnered support from various quarters, positioning the TMC as a key player in the state's political landscape.

With the Lok Sabha polls less than two-and-a-half weeks away, the ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC) and the principal Opposition BJP in West Bengal are engaged in a fierce battle for electoral supremacy. The high-stakes contest has put the spotlight on key issues such as development, governance, and identity politics, shaping the narrative of the upcoming elections.

The comments came even as Trinamool Congress MP Derek O'Brien said that the party is 'very much' part of the Opposition alliance. This assertion underscores the TMC's commitment to collaborating with other opposition parties to counter the BJP's growing influence in the state.

Party sources say that Abhishek is relatively less rigid in his political stand compared to Mamata Banerjee. The selection of candidates reflects a strategic move by the TMC to appeal to a wider voter base and consolidate its support ahead of the elections.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) filed a complaint with the Election Commission of India on Monday, accusing the Trinamool Congress (TMC) of engaging in electoral malpractices. This development underscores the escalating tensions between the two parties as they vie for control of the state's Lok Sabha seats.

The Trinamool Congress today announced candidates for all 42 Lok Sabha seats in West Bengal, in a snub to Congress which had just days earlier proposed an alliance with the ruling party. This move signals the TMC's resolve to independently contest the elections and solidify its position as the dominant political force in the state.
