On its erstwhile turf in West Bengal, where it failed to win even one seat, its vote share reduced to a paltry 7 per cent from 23 per cent in 2014. And in Kerala, where it managed only one seat, its vote share was around 32 per cent.
Ahead of a meeting at 3 pm, Left Front chairman Biman Bose had called West Bengal Pradesh Congress Committee (WBPCC) president Somen Mitra and told him that since the first phase of polls is on April 11, it had become necessary to release the names of some candidates.
"BJP which is an intolerant party is now leaving no stone unturned to malign the image of the Left Front government in Tripura so that it cannot emerge as a model state of development," Bose who is also the chairman of the Left Front in West Bengal said.
CPI(M) had in the past criticised the BJP for forging an alliance with the IPFT. The party's general secretary Sitaram Yechury had accused the BJP of joining hands with "extremist organisations" in Tripura to win the polls.
Bijan Dhar said the party would intensify campaign against the BJP's conspiracy to topple the government and raise its six point charter of demands including waving of loans of marginal and medium level peasants from August 15.
