The West Bengal state leadership has told the polit bureau to grant an exemption to Yechury in the current circumstances as his election from the state is important for its fight against the Opposition Trinamool Congress and the BJP.

This comes despite Yechury ruling himself out, saying he cannot violate party rules of not allowing more than two terms, and a section of the leadership opposing any truck with the Congress.
