New Delhi: Senior Congress leader of Jharkhand and Rajya Sabha MP Dhiraj Prasad Sahu on Monday said that the Congress-Left alliance is not going to suffer any loss due to the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) contesting in the West Bengal assembly elections.
Speaking to ETV Bharat, Sahu said, "While the Congress-Left alliance has a strong position in West Bengal, Jharkhand Mukti Morcha, on the other hand, does not enjoy that. So, the Congress-Left alliance will not suffer any loss because of JMM contesting in the elections."
"Many people from Gumla, Lohardaga, Khunti of Jharkhand are living in West Bengal. When I will go to campaign there, the Congress will benefit and those who live there vote for the Congress," Sahu said.
"In the last West Bengal assembly elections I campaigned for the party in North Bengal and the Congress won around 22-23 seats there," he added.
The Jharkhand Mukti Morcha is preparing to contest elections in Bengal in about two dozen seats and JMM will fight against Congress there.
