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 constituencies.
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.
