Biplobi Bangla Congress


Biplobi Bangla Congress

Biplobi Bangla Congress (Revolutionary Bengali Congress), political party in West Bengal, India. Emerged as a splinter-group of Bangla Congress ahead of the 1971 elections. BBC is led by Sunil Chaudhury and is part of the Left Front. Around March 2001 there were reports that BBC would have switched sides and allied themselves with the All India Trinamool Congress and formed part of the Bangla Bachao Front. But in the actual elections BBC was part of Left Front. Most probably it was a break-away group that had sided with Trinamool. Makhanlal Bangal, who in 1996 had been elected to the state assembly as a BBC candidate (and later got disqualified for electoral malpractice) was an AITC candidate in the 2001 state elections.

In the 2001 assembly elections of West Bengal, BBC contested the Sabong seat in Midnapore and its candidate Tushar Kanti Laya won it. In the 2005 Kolkata Municipal polls, BBC has contested 1 seat as part of Left Front. Its candidate Rita Chowdhury has been elected from ward no 41.

In the 2006 assembly elections of West Bengal, BBC again contested the Sabong seat with Tushar Kanti Laya as its candidate (on a CPI(M) symbol). Laya got 62079 votes (44.98%), but lost the seat to a Congress candidate.
