The Congress proposed that the TMC should merge with it instead to put up a united fight against the BJP. The BJP, which has emerged as a potent force in the state, said the TMC's suggestion amounted to admission that it was not in a position to take on the saffron party on its own in the assembly polls in West Bengal due in April-May. "If the Left Front and the Congress are genuinely anti-BJP, they should rally behind Mamata Banerjee in her fight against the communal and divisive politics of the saffron party," senior TMC MP Sougata Roy said. Reacting to the TMC's proposal, state Congress chief Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury blamed the West Bengal's ruling party for the growth of the BJP in the state. "We are not interested in aligning with the TMC. Why is the TMC now interested in an alliance with us after poaching our MLAs over the last 10 years. If Mamata Banerjee is in keen on fighting the BJP, then she should join the Congress as it is the only pan-India platform to fight against communalism," he said.

If the Centre does not want to stay the implementation of the three farm laws, the Supreme Court on Monday said it will put a stay on it. A three-judge bench, headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Sharad Arvind Bobde, is hearing a batch of petitions, including those filed by DMK MP Tiruchi Siva, RJD MP Manoj K Jha, against the constitutional validity of three farm laws, passed by the Central government along with the plea to remove protesting farmers. "If the Centre does not want to stay the implementation of farm laws, we will put a stay on it," the CJI asserted. The Union of India must take responsibility for all this. "You (Centre) are bringing the laws and you can do it in a better manner," the CJI said. Expressing his displeasure over the way the laws are being framed, the CJI said: "What is going on." "The talks have failed. The whole thing has gone on for more than a month and what negotiations are going on, we don't understand. This is a very delicate situation. The parties are in a delicate situation," Bobde said. "Our intention is that whether we can bring an amicable solution to the issue. Can the law be put on hold for some time? the CJI asked Venugopal. "We can see whether we constitute a committee for resolving the issue. Whether you are a part of the solution or a part of the problem," the CJI said. "There is not a single petition, nor pleadings, which said the laws are good," he said. "Some people have committed suicide, old people and women are a part of the agitation. What is happening?" said CJI. Farmers have been protesting at different borders of the national capital since November 26, 2020 against the three newly enacted farm laws - Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020, and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
