Kolkata: With a number of Congress
dissidents filing nominations as Independents against the
Trinamool-Congress alliance for the coming West Bengal
Assembly polls, AICC leaders today appealed to them to
refrain from doing so and cautioned that they would be
`washed out`.

"It is high time for all concerned to desist themselves
from any attempt that may cause any adverse effect on the
alliance in any manner whatsoever," WBPCC spokesperson
Sukhendu Roy and WBPNTUC chief Pradip Bhattacharya said in a
joint statement.

Roy and Bhattacharya appealed to the people not to vote
for any dissident candidate as it would help the `enemies of
the people.`

Stating West Bengal was on the threshold of a `new era`,
they said "Any person or group of persons, who will dare to
oppose the waves of change will be washed out once and for
all."

They said that while some deserving leaders may feel
frustrated at not being given tickets, no disciplined
Congressman should go against the decision of the party High
Command.
