Kolkata: The tiff between the Congress and the Trinamool Congress which had set several tongues wagging is finally heading towards a tame end. Keeping in mind the significance of the alliance, the bigwigs from both parties have intervened to resolve the ongoing dispute.

Despite the claims made by party seniors, still few differences between the two allies continue on the grass-root level. The fact can be gauged from the recent protest of WB Youth Congress (WBYC) president and Malda MP Mausam Noor against the state government.

Annoyed by the protest, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee went to the extent of expressing her displeasure with the Congress president Sonia Gandhi. Taking the issue into account, the Congress supremo has passed the required instructions in this context.

Noor denied replying to the questions on WBYC campaign against the TMC government. She turned down queries made on the future plans of WBYC to take on the state government.
WB Committee president Pradip Bhattacharya also skipped the question over holding campaigns to protest the alleged attacks on Congress members in the state.

Bhattacharya said, “There are no differences over this issue now and I will soon meet the CM to discuss further details.” He maintained that the Congress is against the policies of Left Front in the state. “We made alliance with TMC to ensure that anti-Left Front votes were not divided in different parties,” he added.

Sources said the Congress high command has taken a serious note over the Mamata’s remarks on the WBYC’s procession.

Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee, party in-charge Shakeel Ahmed and Union Rural Development Minister Jairam Ramesh will attend the Panchayati Raj conference here on Sunday. During the visit, they are expected to clear the party’s stand on several issues of West Bengal.
