New Delhi: The CPI(M) on Monday proposed “no mutual contest” for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections on six seats currently held by the Congress and the Left Front in West Ben-gal, indicating its willingness for an understanding between the two political blocks in the state to consolidate anti-BJP votes. The formula may also be extended to Odisha.

The six seats in West Bengal where no mutual contest has been announ-ced are Murshidabad, Raiganj, Baharampur, Jangipur, Maldaha Dakshin and Maldaha Uttar. Out of these, Murshidabad and Raiganj are currently with the CPI(M), the rest are with the Congress.
