Some parties are trying to divide votes: Mamata

Kolkata: In a veiled attack on Congress with
which it failed to reach a seat-sharing deal for the May 30
civic polls, Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee Saturday said some forces were trying to divide votes to help the
ruling CPI(M) win.

"Some are contesting to divide votes and help the CPI(M)
win. But Trinamool Congress is the actual anti-CPI(M)
nationalist party," Banerjee told an election meeting in
support of party candidates for the Kolkata Municipal
Corporation here.

She said that the last Lok Sabha election had shown that
the CPI(M) could be defeated. Of the 15 Lok Sabha seats which
the Marxist party had won in the state, seven were due to BJP,
she claimed.

Banerjee alleged that the CPI(M) were intimidating people
by saying there would be bloodshed. "We don`t compromise with
CPI(M). It is a big political fight and we are fighting alone
in the midst of money and muscle power."

She also urged police to be neutral and not to serve the
CPI(M).

"We have had enough. Change is needed. If they (CPI-M)
lose this election, they will be out in the Assembly poll,"
she added.
