Predicting a hung assembly for Assam, former Lok Sabha Speaker and veteran Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Purno A Sangma Monday expressed confidence that the Trinamool Congress-led alliance would sweep in West Bengal. “Nobody will get the exact number in Assam. The government will be either led by the Congress or AGP (Asom Gana Parishad),” Sangma said. Stating that the ruling Congress will reduce its seats in the 126 member-house, the veteran NCP leader said, “the AGP will improve its position, the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) will gain, the AIUDF (All India United Democratic Front) will maintain its position, the Trinamool will make its entry and the NCP will improve its position.” Sangma, however, disclosed that there is an internal movement among the non-Congress parties with the AGP leadership with the BJP extending outside support to the AGP-led government.
Sangma, who returned to Shillong after an electioneering campaign with Trinamool Congress Chief Mamata Banerjee, said that the TMC-led alliance would sweeps the assembly polls in West Bengal. “I believed after seeing the West Bengal Mamata will get majority on her own and she will decide whether she will carry her pre-poll partners along, but she will,” he said.
Stating that people in West Bengal are fed up with 35 year rule of the Left, the former Lok Sabha Speaker said, “People wanted a change and the “Amra Paribartan Chai” (We want change)slogan is working in favour of Mamata.”
