The ruling Trinamool Congress today said that it is more bothered about formation of the Cabinet after the Assembly polls in the West Bengal this year than speculations of alliance between Congress and CPI(M).

“The opposition parties are trying to hold each others hands to be politically significant. We are more bothered about what will be the formation of Cabinet after the Assembly polls this year,” TMC General Secretary Subrata Bakshi said at the sidelines of the party’s foundation day celebrations.

The party’s Secretary-General Partha Chatterjee had yesterday ridiculed the talks of the alliance saying it was not in the characters of Congress or CPI(M) to observe “jotdharma” (dharma of an alliance).

“And even if such an alliance did take shape, grassroot Congress workers would always support the Trinamool,” he had said.

The Trinamool leadership today asked its party cadres to take to the people the achievements of the government in the past four years.

“We have asked our party cadres to reach out to each and every people in the state and take to them the achievements of TMC government in the past four and half years,” Bakshi said.
