Amid strained relations between the two parties, TMC advised the Congress that it should take care of its party by doing proper internal coordination.

The Trinamool Congress has made it clear that it is not interested in cooperating with Congress in the upcoming Parliament session. A party leader said on Saturday that the Trinamool Congress is not inclined to coordinate with the Congress during the upcoming winter session of Parliament, but the party will cooperate with other opposition parties on various issues related to the interest of the people.

The TMC leader said that Trinamool Congress may not attend the meeting of opposition parties called by Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge on November 29, the TMC leader said. TMC's rebuttal came after Kharge, the Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, said that the Congress would coordinate with all opposition camps, including the TMC, during the winter session.

Advised the Congress, the first house to handle advised the TMC Congress amid strained relations between the two parties should be concerned about his party while appropriate internal coordination. We have no interest in coordinating with the Congress during the winter session, a senior Trinamool Congress leader who is aware of the party's decision told PTI on condition of anonymity. Congress leaders should first establish coordination among themselves. They should organize their own house and then think of coordinating with other parties.

When asked whether TMC would coordinate with other opposition parties, he said, "We will take up many issues related to the interests of the people and coordinate with them." We will probably not attend the meeting of opposition parties called by Congress.

TMC meeting on November 29

On the Congress's reluctance to fight against the BJP, he said their leaders lack the determination to take on the saffron camp. TMC will hold its National Coordination Committee meeting on November 29 at the residence of West Bengal Chief Minister and party supremo Mamata Banerjee. The TMC leader said the party would discuss various issues, including its strategy, in the winter session of Parliament. Mamata Banerjee was unanimously elected the president of the TMC parliamentary party in July.
