Mamata Banerjee sends candies for Rajnath Singh on Bengali New Year

Mamata Banerjee sends candies for Rajnath Singh on Bengali New Year

However, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) rose to second position polling 52,843 votes, according to reports.

BJP won the bypolls in Delhi, Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Assam while Congress won the Karnataka seats.

The Left and Congress were crushed with candidates of both losing their deposits.

Ironically, the Left is on unsteady ground even in its strongholds at a time when the opposition to the BJP, at least on the university campus, increasingly speaks in an idiom once associated with it.

He said the result in Kanthi South was reflective of the BJP's growth and the significant weakening of the CPI-M and the Congress, indicating the future course of politics in Bengal. "The people of the nation are looking up to BJP's achievements in the state", Sinha said. "Though we came second, it is clear that people have put their faith in us", said Jana.

In 2016, the Left Front had a tie-up with the Congress. The seat fell vacant after TMC MLA Dibyendu Adhikari was elected to the Lok Sabha last year from Tamluk constituency following a by-election last year. This could cost the Left in the long run as the state heads for a triangular contest: The BJP bagged almost 15 per cent votes and a seat in the last assembly election and has been building a third front by roping in communal groups that have failed to find space in the Congress and CPM-led fronts.

"They are so desperate in removing Trinamool Congress that they opted to vote for BJP", Mishra told reporters here.

Chandrima Bhattacharya, who won with a margin of 42526 votes, claimed there was a nexus between the Left, Congress and BJP. There is nothing to be afraid of because people are with Mamata Banerjee, " she said. The jump in the vote share has left people scratching their heads while trying to analyse this surge.

Accusing the BJP and the CPI-M of having an "understanding", Banerjee said, "I have earlier stated that the BJP and the CPI-M are working hand-in-glove".

Congress candidate Naba Kumar Nanda mangaged to get only 2,270 votes, which is just 1.3% of the total votes polled.

"Not only the Left Front supporters but voters of other parties, including those from the ruling party where there is internal feud have voted for BJP", he said.
