WBPCC chief accused of vitiating seat sharing talks
Kolkata: As Congress prepares for seat
sharing talks with Trinamool Congress for West Bengal Assembly
polls, a section of PCC leaders on Sunday accused WBPCC president
Manas Bhuniya of vitiating the atmosphere for talks by going
public with a demand for 98 of the 294 seats.
The leaders - PCC spokesperson Sukhendu Sekhar Roy,
state INTUC president Pradip Bhattacharya, the new WBPCC
general secretary Amitabha Chakraborty and PCC Election
Committee member Abdul Mannan - said there should not be any
pre-condition before the seat sharing talks begin between the
Congress high command and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata
"Whether 98 or 198 seats, it should be discussed
across the table between the competent representatives of the
two parties and not through the media. The way Manas Bhuniya
is going public with his demand for 98 seats will turn things
from bad to worse and he should be restrained immediately,"
Roy, considered be close to Union Finance Minister Pranab
He alleged that Bhuniya was not only making the
Congress workers "hostile" but was also "vitiating the
atmosphere for talks" at a time when none of the Trinamool
Congress leaders had made any comment to the media so far
regarding the number of seats their party wanted to contest.
