WB poll results stun Tripura CPM

By Correspondent

AGARTALA, May 13 � Accepting the poll debacle in West Bengal at the hand of Mamata Banerjee, CPM Tripura secretary Bijan Dhar on Friday said that the people had voted out the Left Front on their own gathered experience.

�It was true that change of wind was blowing across Bengal for the past few years but we could not assess that much of intensity in favour of the TMC-Congress alliance�, Dhar said while talking to reporters at party headquarters here shortly after announcement of the poll verdict of five States.

�We expected a close contest in the Assembly elections but our assessment went wrong in West Bengal�, he said adding that there might be self- introspection session at the party level to know why did people change their mind and pick the TMC-Congress as a better option.

�Everything can�t be assessed sitting at Agartala and party in West Bengal will have a brain-storming session to take remedial measures for future�, he said.

Terming the West Bengal election verdict as a setback for democratic and security movement forces in the entire country, Dhar said that it would certainly make an impact in Tripura too. �Congress, TMC and NCP will certainly gain ground here after Left Front defeat in West Bengal as there is no ideological difference among them�, he said.

Dhar added that the CPM here would meet soon to identify the weaknesses of the party so that remedial measures could be taken in the backdrop of the defeat in West Bengal.

Meanwhile, additional forces have been deployed across the Left-ruled State to avert any untoward incident following the poll outcome in Bengal. Chief Minister Manik Sarkar had reviewed the security situation in the past three days at district level. He also held a high level meeting here last evening.
