Kolkata, March 1 -- Communist Party of India (Marxist) general secretary Sitaram Yechury on Sunday sharpened attack on the ruling Trinamool Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party at the CPI(M)'s first mega rally with coalition partners in poll-bound West Bengal.

Addressing the rally, Yechury urged the people to defeat both the TMC and the BJP. "Many people ask me what we will do if the poll verdict leads to a hung assembly. I ask them to pose the question to chief minister Mamata Banerjee because she has forged an alliance with the BJP several times. Don't be surprised if she joins hands with the BJP again to save her seat. We won't be able to save India unless we defeat both."
