Trinamool Congress, which has stitched up an alliance with Congress, today extended support to Manmohan Singh as the next prime minister and hoped West Bengal would get special attention from him.
"Congress has projected Manmohan Singh as the Prime Minister. We will support him. We are making an advance appeal to him for giving special attention to West Bengal's development," Trinamool Congreee chief Mamata Banerjee said sharing a dais with the PM at an election meeting in Dumurjola.
Alleging that the CPI-M was trying to win through rigged elections, she said change would not come to the state unless the CPI-M was ousted.
She said that the CPI-M was also "intimidating intellectuals" and asked people to resist with whatever they had. "Don't be afraid if you want a change," Banerjee said.
Banerjee appealed to the people to vote for the Trinamool Congress and Congress candidates. "Don't vote for BJP and and other parties," she said.
