"We have convened a meeting of the election committee on March 12 at the party supremo Mamata Banerjee's residence. We will decide on our party candidate list and also the manifesto," said a senior TMC leader.
Lok Sabha elections in West Bengal will begin on April 11 and polling would be held over seven phases through May 19, followed by counting of votes for all seats on May 23, the Election Commission announced on Sunday.
The TMC presently represent 32 Lok Sabha seats in the state and has set a target of winning all the 42 seats.
The party is locked in a bitter political battle with the BJP, which had made steady inroads in the state and has set the target of winning 23 Lok Sabha seats.
Besides the BJP, the TMC will also face the CPI(M) and the Congress, which will be fighting the polls in a seat sharing deal in the state.
