Gavit, who was one of the key figures behind the two Farmers Long Marches called by the CPI(M)-affiliated All India Kisan Sabha (AIKS) in the state over the last year, is expected to be accompanied by nearly 10,000 farmers and tribals.
The CPI(M) has a strong base in Solapur. BJP’s Jaisiddheshwar Mahaswamiji, Congress’s Sushil Kumar Shinde and Ambedkar are in the fray from the constituency. Ambedkar has tied up with the AIMIM to float the BVA, which will contest all the 48 seats in the state.
The 15 seats where the Sena will field its candidates are Calcutta South, Dum Dum, Basirhat, Barasat, Barrackpore, Jadavpur, Midnapore, Contai, Birbhum, Bolpur, Bankura, Bishnupur, Purulia, Murshidabad and Malda North.
According to a statement by the Politburo, the Left party said two members of the National Statistical Commission, a statutory body which releases the National Sample Survey Organisation (NSSO) reports, resigned because of the unemployment data.
