Malda: The Congress in West Bengal
Tuesday said that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee should look
into the problems plaguing the Trinamool Congress-led
alliance.

He said it was in the interest of both parties to keep
the alliance going and Banerjee should intervene.

Addressing a press conference here, state Congress
president Pradip Bhattacharjee said his party had formed an
alliance with the Trinamool Congress only because people
wanted so.

``Now if people do not want us to remain an ally of
the Trinamool Congress, we will quit,`` Bhattacharjee said.

It was the Congress high command which had put the
seal of approval on the alliance, and now `we will leave the
alliance only if the high command wants us to`, he said.

Bhattacharjee said his party did not commit any wrong
by highlighting problems faced by paddy, potato and jute
growers in the state.

``We consider it our duty to speak of the problems of
farmers. What will they do if they cannot sell their
produce?`` he said.

He defended Congress minister Manoj Chakraborty`s
use of the state secretariat as a stage to attack Trinamool
Congress yesterday and said the trend was set by Trinamool
Congress. He did not elaborate.
