Addressing a press conference in Kolkata on Sunday, Trinamool supremo Mamata Banerjee claimed that Congress will not need the Left’s support to form the next government.
Replying to a question, she ruled out the possibility of the Left (read Third Front) forming a government at the Centre. “How can the Left form the next government? Are they contesting in 100 seats? Left will manage barely three or four seats in Kerala and Tripura and in Bengal it will be zero. Trinamool’s alliance with Congress will remain as it is. I don’t believe that Congress is keen on joining hands with CPM. We are not going to join NDA either. It is impossible for me to join hands with CPM and now it is the same with BJP,” Mamata said
