LF victory in 1977 and defeat in 2011 'historical events'

"It should be regarded as historical events in the evolution of the movement of the Left Front. This study can provide us ample lessons for our future course of action," FB General Secretary Debabrata Biswas said in a statement.

Stating that the Left Front's decline had been evident in the last three years in the panchayat elections, municipal elections and Lok Sabha election in 2009, he said "It is now being realised that the people overwhelmingly responded to the slogan for change given by the opposition."

Biswas said that the Left Front would assure the new government of help and cooperation in pro-people programmes, "but will oppose any step that may go against the interest of the people."

The AIFB leader said "We hope the new government will not fail to appreciate its responsibility to maintain peace."
