Mamata Bannerjee led Alliance has ended the 34 year reign of the Communists democratically, by winning 226 out of 294 seats, trouncing their opponents, the coalition of communist parties.
Mamata Bannerjee’s win is mainly due to
Her fiery and rumbustious style of Politics.
Ability to gauge the Public mood .
Persistent espousal of Public Cause,like forcible grabbing of lands from farmers in favor of Industrial houses.
Astute selection of State Politics over National Politics.
and due to Communist’s
Ambivalence of Communists on Industrial Policy.
Blind adherence to out dated cliches and arm chair National Leadership.
Forcible eviction of Farmers from their lands.
Confusion over the handling of Maoists violence, whether to support it or not.
Non developmental activities.
Maintaining of private armies and encouragement of thuggery by party cadres.
Now Mamata’s skill will be tested in running the State.
It will be an onerous task,considering her record as Central Minister, dictatorial way of functioning and brinkmanship and lack of second rung leadership in the party and a dearth of talent.
KOLKATA: Everyone knew that the Titanic was sinking. The end came on Friday as a natural sequel to the rising anti-incumbency displayed in the couple of elections in Bengal since 2008 – panchayat, Lok Sabha and municipal polls. Mamata Banerjee made history on Friday with her party romping home to victory, far crossing the single majority quotient. It marked the end of the 34-year communist rule and a break from the stifling status quo resting on political patronage.
