The Congress has stitched together some alliances belatedly over the last few days but is it a too little too late? What about tie-ups with parties like the Trinamool, the Aam Admi Party let alone the big two in Uttar Pradesh - Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav? In the case of Bengal, just weeks after he appeared in a press conference with Mamata Banerjee, Rahul Gandhi has hit out at the Trinamool and the West Bengal chief minister on the election trail, even speaking about her and his arch rival, the Prime Minister in the same breath. Today, there were sharp reactions from the BJP and the Trinamool Congress. The message of these two parties were essentially the same, Rahul Gandhi is clueless about the politics of West Bengal. On Left, Right and Centre tonight, by speaking about Mamata Banerjee and the PM in the same context during a rally in West Bengal has Rahul Gandhi made the prospects of a post poll alliance, a true Mahagathbandhan even tougher?
