Want out of Trinamool alliance, Congress leaders tell Chidambaram
"Chidambaram has endorsed our complaint that the Congress is being regularly attacked by Trinamool supporters in the state. We have told him that we want to walk out of the alliance as the present state government doesn't take our advice regarding any policy decisions," said a Congress MP on condition of anonymity.
The MP also said the state leaders also told the home minister that the state unit would not like to take the burden of the Trinamool's "misrule".
"We have told him that we should not take the burden of the misrule of Trinamool. He told us that he will convey our feelings to the party high command. He said he can understand the pros and cons of the alliance as the Congress itself has been in an alliance in his home state, Tamil Nadu."
Expressing serious concern over the ongoing protests in Andhra Pradesh, following the nod for the creation of a separate Telangana State, the Communist Party of India (CPI) leader D Raja said that the Centre must address the genuine concerns of the people and assure them that their interests will be duly protected.
