Left Front chairman takes umbrage to Congress leader’s comments

Kolkata, March 16 (IANS) West Bengal Left Front chairman Biman Bose on Wednesday took umbrage to state Congress president Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury blaming some Left Front partners for standing in the way of seat adjustment for the upcoming assembly polls.

“Some Left Front partners have told me that Chowdhury has made some disparaging comments about them. Such comments are disrespectful. Left Front is not a grouping of nine day wonder leaders. It has been formed through years of struggle.

“Such comments are unwarranted and should be avoided, as otherwise the seat adjustment talks could be affected,” Bose told the media after a meeting of Left Front constituents.

However, he claimed that the disputes with the Congress over some of the seats were being sorted out.

“These things will be resolved in the next few days. The seat adjustment is more or less complete. Only a few seats need some more discussions.”

Bose announced eight more candidates of the Left Front while extending support to two independents.

With this, the Left Front has put candidates in 207 seats.
