Kolkata: In a tough message to ally Congress, Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee on Sunday said that her party would not be a part of any post-poll arrangement at the Centre which has Left parties in it and also ruled out any truck with the BJP.
“If the Left forms an alliance with the Congress, we will not go. Nor will we go along with the BJP,” she said in remarks which are significant in the wake of the recent Congress overtures to the Left.
“It is not possible for us to go along with CPI(M) It is also not possible to go with the BJP,” she told reporters at the Kolkata Press Club.
She said her party had “no ties” with the BJP and expressed confidence that Congress would form the government without Left support.
“I believe that Congress will not need support from CPI-M and there is no question mark over our alliance with Congress,” the Trinamool chief said.
Mamata made it clear that the alliance between her party and the Congress was on.
