Releasing the list at a press conference here, TMC's Kerala state president Manoj Sankaranellur said the party would field its candidates in all 140 Assembly constituencies in the state and that the second list would be released soon with the approval of the party chief Banerjee.
She would attend three election rallies of the party in Thiruvananthapuram, Kochi and Kozhikode in April, he said. Claiming that party has two lakh members in Kerala, Manoj said the party is also eyeing on the support of over 15 lakh Bengalis currently working in the state.
He claimed the Trinamool Congress votes can influence the election results in more than 40 Assembly seats. He, however, said the party would not be able to win a seat in the state. "We will emerge as a strong force after five years," he said.
State President of the party's trade union wing (INTTUC), Subhash Kundannoor, claimed that many Congress leaders in Kerala, who are upset with the alliance in West Bengal, would soon join Trinamool Congress to fight such an 'unholy nexus'.
