Most importantly, a few Left parties within the Left Front have started sending positive indications of accompanying the conglomeration. This is more frustrating to the CPI (M), which had its Raja and omnipotence for years.
Trinamool Congress’s alliance with small opponents at the grassroot level has proved its success in the recent panchayat and municipal elections. CPI(M) has not only lost its stronghold to a great extent, but it has also lost its mass support to a great extent. This is a fresh threat to the party in power, which has already been facing a general bitterness from the non-committal voters.
Bitterness from within the party cadres and strong supporters is also evidenced in parts of the state. This is because their dream for a sustained positive rule did not succeed. A large part of them have remained outside the mainstream politics.
A feeling among the new generation voters also poses danger to the CPI(M) who has never seen any other party to rule. A strong feeling of the new generation for a better option helps the opponent to become stronger and weakening the ruling party. They are not convinced with the fact-file produced by CPI(M) on the corrupt reign of Congress in early ‘70s because they are not concerned.
The situation will continue to be on changing mode for the coming few months because there is no alternative. And undoubtedly, the opponent camp will gain more and more strength before the next state assembly elections in 2010, if not earlier. May be the Left Front will really retreat.
In such a situation the only question that would attract attention from all will be – Will everything be all right and will the new winners (opponents) be able to control the CPI(M)?
