Mamata for early Assembly polls in Bengal
Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee has sought early Assembly elections in West Bengal.
Kolkata: Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee has sought early Assembly elections in West Bengal.
Talking to reporters here, Banerjee said West Bengal could have Assembly polls by this year itself, instead of May 2011 as scheduled.
She said she was confident about the Trinamool sweeping them.
However, Left Front leaders say the demand cannot be accommodated for want of Constitutional provisions.
"There is no possibility of early elections. The schedule cannot be changed as it does not depend on the whims of a political leader, said CPM spokesman Benoy Konar.
A section of the CPM leadership believes that all forms of alliance between the Congress and the Trinamool will collapse, if the elections are held as per schedule.
