Panaji: The Congress will get only enough MPs to fill a railway compartment in the Lok Sabha election, Trinamool Congress spokesperson Derek O`Brien said here Friday.

"Remember a railway compartment has only 72 seats..." O`Brien said.

The spokesperson was speaking to reporters during his Goa visit to campaign for the Trinamool`s sole candidate Churchill Alemao, contesting from the South Goa constituency.
O`Brien said the Trinamool would be the third largest party in the Lok Sabha and no government would be formed at the Centre without the say of his party.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who is also the party chief, would not mind leading a group of chief ministers to form a government at the Centre, O`Brien added.

"It is not called the Third Front but the All India Federal Front, which will have chief ministers who have good track records of development in their state," O`Brien said.
