The Trinamool Congress is unlikely to join the Rahul Gandhi-led ‘Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra’ when it enters West Bengal on January 25, a senior party leader said on Wednesday.
The Yatra, currently in Assam, is scheduled to enter West Bengal through Bakshirhat in Cooch Behar district on January 25. After a recess of two days –January 26-27, it will be traversing Jalpaiguri, Alipurduar, Uttar Dinajpur and Darjeeling before reaching Bihar on January 29.
It will re-enter West Bengal on January 31 through Malda and travel via Murshidabad, both strongholds of the Congress, before leaving the state on February 1.
“We haven’t received a formal invitation from the Congress. And even if we receive it we are most unlikely to join it”, the senior TMC leader told PTI.
The development came amid the growing animosity between both the parties – TMC and Congress – the INDIA bloc alliance partners over seat sharing in West Bengal.
