Elections 2024: Mamata Banerjee announces TMC candidates for all 42 seats in West Bengal

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Sunday announced Trinamool Congress’ candidates for all 42 seats in West Bengal.

“Today, I will bring before you 42 candidates for the 42 Lok Sabha seats in Bengal,” Banerjee said at TMC’s massive Jana Garjan Sabha held at Brigade Parada Grounds in Kolkata.

West Bengal has 42 Lok Sabha seats, of these 32 are unreserved seats, while 10 are reserved for scheduled caste (SC) candidates and 2 are reserved for scheduled tribe (ST) candidates respectively.

The party renominated 16 sitting MPs and fielded 12 women in the electoral fray.

Soon after the TMC announced all its candidates, Congress MP Jairam Ramesh said that the Congress party has time and again expressed its desire to have a seat-sharing agreement with the party in Bengal.

“The Indian National Congress has always maintained that such an agreement has to be finalised through negotiations and not by unilateral announcements. The Indian National Congress has always wanted the INDIA group to fight the BJP together,” Ramesh said.
