Trinamool Congress president Mamata Banerjee is expected to address at least eight rallies in Uttar Pradesh in March. She has also reportedly asked party’s state president to submit a list of probable candidates from the state by March 9.
“She (Mamata) has said we will contest elections from a considerable number of constituencies in UP. We have been asked to prepare a probable list of constituencies and candidates by March 9, after which the party president will decide on the candidature from each constituency,” said Shyam Sundar Sharma, the state president and party’s only MLA in UP.
“We will organise two rallies in a day. We have to propose the dates,” he added.

Earlier, Sharma had told The Indian Express that the Trinamool Congress had plans of contesting elections from 10 to 15 “good seats” in the state.
The party has already held rallies in Azamgarh, Mirzapur, Pilibhit, Barielly and Lucknow in February and another rally in Mathura in December. However, no senior party leader made an appearance in these rallies
The state president said apart from Banerjee, prominent leaders of the party like national general secretary and former railway minister Mukul Roy, former Union Minister of State for Tourism Sultan Ahmad amongst others are expected to address the rallies. Though Roy was scheduled to address the Lucknow rally Sunday, he gave it a miss.
