Bangla Congress

The Bangla Congress was a regional political party in the Indian state of West Bengal. It was formed through a split in the Indian National Congress in the 1960s and later co-governed with the Communist Party of India (Marxist) (CPI(M)) in two United Front governments, the first lasting from March 15, 1967 to November 2, 1967 and the second from February 25, 1969 to March 19, 1970. Ajoy Mukherjee was the Chief Minister in both governments. On March 19, 1970, the second United Front government fell as a result of the breakdown of the alliance between the Bangla Congress and the CPI(M). The Bangla Congress then went into rapid decline and was later reunified with the Indian National Congress.
