LF says it will work to remove "misunderstandings"

Kolkata, Jan 1 : With the reverses in the civic polls still playing on its mind, the Left Front today said it will work to strengthen coordination and remove "misunderstandings" among its partners ahead of the Lok Sabha elections."We have been successful in making the partners acknowledge the misunderstandings that had cropped up during the panchayat election last year," the chairman of the ruling alliance in West Bengal, Biman Basu, told reporters here after a meeting of the Front.
The opposition Trinamool Congress won two Zilla Parishads in South 24 Parganas and East Midnapore in May besides sweeping the rural polls in the Singur belt.Bose said that as part of measures to strengthen the Front and "sort out lack of coordination among the partners, the number of meetings, even bipartite, would be increased, if required, at the state and district levels". However, the meeting today did not discuss if there would be any change in seat-sharing following delimitation of constituencies, Basu said.
Basu said he was hopeful of a favourable result in the forthcoming Nandigram Assembly by-election provided it was peaceful and people exercised their franchise without fear.
