Verdict in West Bengal

Verdict in West Bengal


Trying to oblige industrialists, it protected criminals convicted for murder  and the middle class voter was disillusioned with the WB government. The strategic alliance between congress and TMC resulted in a rout for CPM. Instead of using their parliamentary clout for economic packages for the state, it tried to hijack economic and foreign policy, alienated the congress party, acted as a spokesman for chinese interests, opposed India US nuclear deal, praised Iran's nuclear programme and insisted on India's support to it.

Unlike Chandrababu Naidu of TDP during NDA rule 2000 - 2004 ,Nitish Kumar of JD(U) and Navin Patnaik of BJD,  the CPM has done precious little for WB which has been sending a large contingent of MP's. It richly deserved the decimation it received from the electorate.
