West Bengal Decides
Chandra Kumar Bose, completes the picture in this seat.
Bitter rivals CPM and Congress have buried their differences to challenge Banerjee. Take the case of septuagenarian Azizul Haque, a former Naxalite and Left author, who was oncebeatenupbyCongressactivists. But ironically, Haque is backing Congress now. “They (Congress supporters) were better than Mamata -in fact, anyone’s better than her,” he said. But whatever Haque asserts, Banerjee is the undisputed leader here, which explains the discomfiture among the Left-Congress ranks.
