The Left-Congress seat raffle talks were going on quite smoothly. Tal Siddique Abbas Siddique’s inclusion in the Indian Secular Front. The situation is such that the left-Congress is in a difficult position to handle the ‘whims’ of the ISF. The ISF on Thursday gave an ‘ultimatum’ to Congress with a list of seats. Today, Friday, the provincial leadership made it clear that Abbas’s demands could not be met. Not a single seat can be left without Murshidabad-Malda.
Malda, Murshidabad is still dominated by the Congress. And the ISF has demanded more than one seat in that district! It also includes the seats won by the Congress. Sujapur West is the center of the late Gani Khan. Adding passion to him led the province. According to sources, that seat is also in the list of ISF. They also want the seats won by Mohit Sengupta and Milton Rashid. In the meantime, the CPM has become a little more flexible, leaving the ISF to win the Jalangi seat. However, the provincial leadership informed Alimuddin that it was not possible for them without seats in Malda and Murshidabad.
According to sources, Abdul Mannan could not get in touch with ISF chairman Nowshad Siddiqui on Thursday. Abbas Siddiqui did not even come to a meeting on Asan Rafa. The question is being raised inside the Congress, Biman Basu is also in the meeting. Then how big a leader can Abbas be? How can a new party claim so much on top of that? All in all, the angry provincial leadership. Clearly the Congress is not possible without seats in Malda, Murshidabad. They agreed to give 6 seats elsewhere. Biman Basu and Pradeep Bhattacharya are going to sit in another meeting on Saturday. On the other hand, ISF is also firm with Murshidabad and Malda. This is what made Alimuddin think.
According to sources, Abbas Siddique has demanded 50 seats. Alimuddin is trying to tie it between 30-35. Leftists are leaving a total of 26 seats to meet the ISF’s ‘whim’. CPM alone is gifting 20 seats to a new friend. Of the remaining 6, 4 are from Forward Bloc, 2 from RSP and 1 from CPI. The partners are also dissatisfied with the decision of the CPM. They also think that Abbas is being given extra priority. As a result, the CPM leadership has to face the question of allies.
