Jalangi Assembly Elections 2016

Murshidabad is a stronghold of the Congress and more specifically of Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, who also happens to be current president of the West Bengal unit of the Congress. He would like Congress to contest if there is an alliance with the TMC. If the alliance between them does not materialize, there would be a division of votes. And it will be beneficial for the CPIM whose fortunes have dipped since its crushing defeat in the last assembly elections.
