"We will contest in all 60 seats in the state," TMC leader and former railway minister Mukul Roy said after a meeting with party leaders.

The TC has MLAs in other north eastern states like Manipur, Arunachal Pradesh and Assam besides UP.

Roy accompanied by former Lok Sabha MP Joichan Baxla and other party members met former state home minister and Congress leader RG Lyngdoh besides others as their scout for the leader continues.

As the assembly elections is drawing near, scheduled sometimes between February – March 2013, TC is still struggling to find reliable leaders.
