NEW DELHI: The left is on its way to making history in both west bengal and Kerala.
Once a political force to be reckoned with, the Front left in West Bengal it has dropped to single digits for the first time in the state’s electoral history, based on current electoral trends.
On the other hand, the group led by Pinarayi Vijayan LDF He is ready to make another kind of history by retaining power in Kerala and breaking the state’s LDF-UDF-LDF-UDF five-year cyclical pattern.
This is what the results mean for the Left Front …
Triumph in Kerala
At a time when the left is fighting for political survival, the results in Kerala will surely be an encouraging sign for communism in India.
Since it lost its control over Bengal and Tripura, Kerala was the only stronghold of the Left Front in India.
Losing power in the state would have resulted in a “left mukt bharat”, leaving the front on the brink of the political abyss.
If current trends continue, this will be the first time in 40 years that the state would re-elect a ruling alliance. So far, power in Kerala has alternated between the LDF and the UDF.
The results will also solidify Vijayan’s position as a mass popular leader who has managed to successfully combat factors such as the fight against incumbency, corruption allegations and the current Covid crisis.
Disappointment in Bengal
Trends indicate that the left is likely to go blank in West Bengal, a state that was its stronghold.
The left had ruled Bengal for 34 years from 1977 to 2011 until it was overthrown by Mamata Banerjee. TMC.
Since then, it has gradually lost its political influence in the state, dwindling from more than 230 seats in 2006 to just 32 in 2016.
If trends hold, it will be the first time in state history that the left has dropped to 0. In fact, it never dropped to single digits.
In a contest focused primarily on TMC and BJP, the political annihilation of the left would definitely come as a moral setback for the front.
