KOLKATA, 4 FEB: Trinamul Congress secretary general Partha Chatterjee today released the list of candidates for 107 of the 108 municipalities, barring Darjeeling – going to the polls on 27 February. The selection of candidates has been based on to maintain the party’s ‘one person, one post’ policy.

Releasing the list, Mr Chatterjee and party’s state chief Subrata Bakshi said that those not given nomination should not voice their displeasure in an “unseemly manner” and work in the interest of the party.

Mr Chatterjee said that no sitting MLA has been fielded as candidate and multiple members of the same family did not get nominations.

He noted that the list contains names of incumbent councillors as well as debutants — many of them women and youth.

“We know that the ones who did not get a nomination may feel upset. But we are hoping that none will voice displeasure in an unseemly manner. That won’t be tolerated. All of us should work for the party, campaign for the party. The TMC will win with overwhelming majority in every municipality,” he stated.

The party accidentally released a ‘soft copy’ of a ‘preliminary list’ through e-mail that circulated widely. But, it gathered a widespread displeasure from most of the district. Later, the party released the final list of candidates of 107 municipalities in the evening.

“We are optimistic that none will publicly voice displeasure or do anything untoward. It won’t be tolerated…. Everyone must work for the party and its cause,” said the secretary-general, adding that the party had struck a balance between the old and the new.

Mr Chatterjee also said TMC chairperson Mamata Banerjee has gone through the list before release.
