Congress’s West Bengal in-charge Jitin Prasad said, “The committee will hold talks with the Left parties regarding seat sharing and joint programs for the West Bengal assembly elections.” The Congress wants to contest more seats. Last time the party contested about 95 seats and now it wants to contest more seats. In this case, the committee will identify the seats and will negotiate with the left parties in view of the final deal. However, the result of Bihar election may hamper the possibility of the party getting more seats.

The Congress failed to perform well in the Bihar elections and the party lost significant seats in Makabale from the ruling NDA, which had an impact on the RJD alliance. In such a situation, there is pressure on the Congress to do better in West Bengal elections.
