Kolkata: Describing the law and order situation in West Bengal as "bad" Congress on Friday asked the state government to stop misuse of central forces.

"During the UPA-I and UPA-II governments, enough central forces were provided to the state government to combat the Maoist menace. But the ruling party here was misusing them to serve its political interests," AICC Secretary Shakeel Ansari told a press conference here.

Ansari said the state government had failed to provide security to the common man.

He also said the Congress and the Trinamool Congress would fight the coming Assembly elections in Bengal jointly.

"Already there is an alliance (between Congress and Trinamool Congress). And there will be an alliance for the Assembly elections too. The process is going on," he added.
