    Mamata says ready to align with Left to defeat BJP

    [​IMG]

    West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday did not rule out a possible alliance with arch enemies, the Left, to take on a resurgent BJP, which has had a political dream run in 2014.

    "We have to combat the communal vandalism of the BJP," Mamata told Consulting Editor Rajdeep Sardesai in an exclusive interview with Headlines Today, adding, "We can have a common minimum agenda with the Left."

    The reconciliatory gesture towards the Left, the alliance Mamata defeated in a historic election in 2011 after over three decades of Communist rule in West Bengal, can be read in the context of recent setbacks Mamata has suffered because of the Saradha scam. West Bengal will hold its next Assembly elections in 2016.

    The Trinamool Congress supremo, whose efforts at stitching a federal front in the run-up to the Lok Sabha elections this year failed, is now trying to join forces with like-minded parties. On Monday, she was in Delhi to participate in a Congress conference to commemorate the 125th anniversary of Jawaharlal Nehru.

    Janata Dal (United) chief Sharad Yadav and senior Left leaders, including Sitaram Yechury and Prakash Karat, also attended the Nehru conference in what was a clear sign of anti-BJP parties now trying to find a common platform.

    In her interview with Headlines Today, Mamata conceded that there are ideological differences with the Left, but it should not come in the way of being a part of a secular front nationally.

    The Left, meanwhile, rejected the offer, saying that it looks at West Bengal as a triangular contest between the Trinamool, the BJP and itself. "If you have to fight communalism, you have to answer some fundamental questions. Who brought BJP to Bengal?" CPM's Mohammed Salim told Headlines Today.

    "The Left is not interested, we will fight both," he said.

    TMC-Left combo will probably allow BJP to make inroads into WB.

    I heard and saw Mamata Bannerjee's interview with Rajdeep Sardesai.

    She come out like an idiot.

    The CBI is hauling her right hand man, the Transport Minister for inquisition.

    The can of worms opens!

    Mumtaz Bano, mausquerading as Mamta Bannerji, gave a death blow to left in WB. She thoroughly doscredited them beyond any hope. With alliance, left will demand quite a big pound of their own. How else will alliance work. Hence the seeds of break up are there.

    TMC/Cong alliance will lend any more sinews to Mamta. But in the process TMC SHALL suffer.
