Congress-CPM tie-up has disrupted TMC's poll arithmetic: Adhir Ranjan Chowdhary

Kolkata: Congress on Monday claimed that the tie-up between Congress and CPM in West Bengal has "disturbed the poll arithmetic" of Trinamool Congress and that is why it has sought shelter from BJP in scams ranging from "Saradha to the Narada".

Adhir Ranjan Chowdhary said on Monday, "The alliance of Congress and CPM has disturbed the poll arithmetic of TMC in Bengal. They are jittery and are apprehensive about the outcome of the polls since they know very well that an united opposition will defeat the TMC in Bengal."

Adhir also alleged that in order to save her party from corruption cases from "Saradha to Narada, they have taken shelter in the BJP camp". The state Congress president was referring, respectively, to the chit fund scam and a recent sting operation showing TMC leaders purportedly accepting bribes or promising favours in exchange for stake in a fictitious firm.

"The BJP is shielding them (TMC) in corruption cases. Both are playing a fixed match and trying to fool the people," he charged.
