Kolkata: Flush with success of the Trinamool Congress-Congress alliance in West Bengal, Trinamool chief Mamata Banerjee today demanded an early assembly election in the state, saying that people have expressed ‘no-confidence’ in the CPM led ruling Front.
“People have expressed no-confidence in the CPI(M) led Left Front through their verdict in the Lok Sabha poll and we want an early Assembly poll in the state”, she said.
Thanking the people, she said: “I salute them for the way they fought against CPI(M) terror and exercised their franchise. We dedicate our victory to the people.”
Asked if Trinamool, which emerged as a key partner of the UPA, would get some good portfolios in the central government, Mamata said that counting was still not over.
“Let all our newly-elected MPs come. We will sit and discuss. I had earlier stated that we will not go with the BJP and work for the installation of a secular government in Delhi”, she said
