KOLKATA: The Congress high command on Tuesday decided — against the wishes of its Bengal unit — not to field a candidate against chief minister Mamata Banerjee in the Bhowanipore bypoll.
The Congress decision has implications beyond Bhowanipore, leaving broad hints that the party might go with TMC in the 2024 Lok Sabha polls and putting a question mark on the party’s alliance with the Left.
Meanwhile, Bengal BJP sent to the party brass names of six possible candidates, including former Tripura governor Tathagata Roy and high court lawyer Priyanka Tibrewal, to be put up against Banerjee. The candidate is likely to be announced on Wednesday.
