Congress

The alliance in the Communist Party of India (Marxist) and Congress in West Bengal will join hands in the upcoming West Bengal Assembly Elections. According to the reports, the CPI(M) Central Committee will announce it officially on October 30 and 31.

A meeting was held by CPI(M) Central Committee on Sunday to discuss the assembly elections in Kerala and West Bengal. According to reports, preliminary discussions on the allies for the elections in the two states were carried out in the virtual meeting. The meeting also discussed the common political situation as the main agenda. Bihar elections were also considered at the meeting.

The CPI(M) and the Congress had allied in Bengal in the 2016 assembly polls, but it failed to evoke much impact. In the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, the proposed Congress-CPI(M) alliance fell apart after both the parties were unable to reach an agreement on the seat-sharing deal. Both the CPIM and Congress had contested the municipal elections from those seats in which they have already won.

Also, there are 19 CPI (ML), 6 each of CPI and CPM candidates, in the Bihar assembly election. CPI (ML) has a strong presence in Central Bihar constituencies of Bhojpur, Kai­m­ur, Jahananad, Arwal, Ga­ya, and Aurangabad distr­i­cts. Violent caste clashes between the upper caste land­owning Bhumihar and Dalits had taken place in these districts in the 1970s and 80s.
