Cong plays down TMC plans for Goa, Manipur polls

Congress Tuesday played down plans of key UPA constituent Trinamool Congress to contest Assembly elections in Goa and Manipur, currently ruled by it.



New Delhi: Congress on Tuesday played down plans of
key UPA constituent Trinamool Congress to contest Assembly
elections in Goa and Manipur, currently ruled by it.
"If I recall, at some point of time the Trinamool Congress
had also contested elections from Tripura, Jharkhand and
probably in Kerala. So I leave it to your judgement whether it
constitutes spreading the political base," party spokesman
Manish Tewari told reporters.

His remarks came in the wake of announcement by the
Trinamool Congress leader Mukul Roy that his party would
participate in Assembly elections in Goa and Manipur.

Roy had also announced that former Goa chief minister
Wilfred D` Souza had joined Trinamool Congress.
"There is no bitterness in our ties with Trinamool
Congress. There are cordial relations. There can be two
opinions on an issue but it is not appropriate to tar the
difference of opinion as a rift," he said.
