TMC rules out alignment with BJP, claims it will do better than 2009
Kolkata: Trinamool Congress, projected to do well in Lok Sabha polls in the 42 constituencies in West Bengal, on Tuesday ruled out a post-poll alignment with NDA.
"The question of supporting such a formation does not arise," the national spokesperson of TMC Derek O`Brien told PTI here when asked whether the party would support NDA, projected in the exit polls to form the government headed by Narendra Modi, if it falls short of majority mark and approached it.
TMC, which secured 19 Lok Sabha seats from West Bengal last time when it had an alliance with Congress in 2009, would do `much better` this time when it fought alone, he said.
"The good work done by the Mamata Banerjee government in the past three years will be rewarded. In 2009, we had fought Lok Sabha poll in Bengal in alliance with Congress. We went to the poll on our own this time. We will do much better than our performance five years ago," he said.
