Kolkata:

The Congress on Saturday released its first list of candidates for West Bengal elections starting later this month, naming 13 contenders for the first two of the eight-phase polls.

The announcement came hours after the BJP released its list with 57 names and a day after the ruling Trinamool Congress’s complete list for the elections to the 294-seat assembly.

West Bengal will hold elections in a record eight rounds between March 27 and April 29. Votes will be counted on May 2 along with four other states that are going to polls.

The Congress is contesting the election in alliance with its long-time rival the Left and has said it will beat both the ruling Trinamool Congress and a formidable BJP.
