Leftist candidates suffered a severe drubbing
in two Bengal assembly by-elections. One candidate even lost her security deposit
after polling just 14% votes.
It is a bad omen for the Left while the opposition
parties are charged up with the result. In
both Sealdah and Bou Bazar
Trinomul Congress candidates did extensively
well in those elections while the leftists faced a crushing defeat .
Election observers say that exactly this result
was expected after Lok Sabha election where Congress anf Trinomuul Congress
came up with flying colors.
