Congress denies having an alliance with us, we don’t think that way: ISF chief, Abbas Siddiqui | India News


HOOGLY: The head of the Indian Secular Front (ISF) Abbas Siddiqui has said that even though Congress denies having an alliance with his party, the two parties are working together in West Bengal.
“Congress denies having an alliance with us, but we do not think that. We want Sanjukta Morcha to form the government and the workers of Congress to do better since they are also fighting. If their leadership thinks differently, what can we do? ” Siddiqui told ANI.
“We cannot probe their minds. Unless Congress says something openly, we cannot know what they think. We are also campaigning for the candidates for Congress.
“Some leaders of the Congress party have called our communal party but we have been working together. It is Congress that must explain the differences between our party,” he added.
“In some places, the results of Sanjukta Morcha are good, while in some places, other parties are doing well. This is what we are hearing. But I want each voter to vote for their favorite candidate.”
The second phase of the West Bengal assembly elections concluded on Thursday with an estimated voter turnout of 80.43 percent. A total of 30 constituencies from the assembly of the South 24 Parganas, Bankura, Paschim Medinipur and Purba Medinipur districts went to the polls.
Voting for West Bengal’s third phase in eight phases will take place on April 6. The vote count will take place on May 2.
