    Why not? If Bengalis don't learn from the History then more Direct Action days will follow for them (which is already happening in rural bengal werever Jihadis form majority).....anyways Leftists have ruled bengal for over 30yrs hence secularism and freeloadership is part and parcel of a common bengali's life..... change will take time; however vote percentage of BJP is constantly increasing!

    Do you realize winning even one seat in a hardcore leftist / secular state is a big thing....there vote percentage has phenomenally grown! However, change in Bengal will take very long as majority has been rendered freeloaders over past 30 yrs and the status quo wont change soon!

    :LOL:

    I have to laugh at your ignirance folks. You gyys have not been shown in msm due to the Nepal disaster as that took prominence over WB minicipal election, about how yhe cadre of TMC helped people by casting their votes for them when cops looked other way and howbin some places even ghosts came down to vote since those booths recorded more than cent percent of voting or how presiding officers were openly threatened in front of indifferenr or bisinly cowed police that if hw doesnt cooperate, they know where he luves and that he has a daughter.So that was the picture of free and fare election that was held in WB w/o central forces. The TMC did not only took some pages out of Leftists book how to 'conduct' an election, but also wrote some new paragraphs themselves. It was atrocious and we have not seen anything like this in a decade.

    However as my dad believes that by this act TMC just put the nails on its coffin as when in 2016 assembly election is conducted with full central forces security, the peopel who are disgusted by the latest atrocities committed by TMC goons during the municipal election will vote and TMC will find that it has miscalculated grossly.

    I dont know whats gonna happen in 2016 but easy sailing for TMC it wont be unless center reguses central force - adequate central forces - to WB.

    My point is whatever nonsense TMC does is halal because Bengalis are secular. Infact, Bengalis are so secular that they dont even talk about the recent attacks on Hindus there, because attacks on Hindus in secular land of the Bengalis is halal:laugh:

    Come on now. How much difference will the booth capturing make ? When such thugs exists, even one vote to such thugs should be considered bad. So is TMC not the most popular party in WB right now vote share wise, even after accounting for the booth captures?

    Maybe Bengal should merge with Bangladesh. Honestly, TMC is one of the worst political parties in India. It might even be the worst. Bengalis prove themselves dumb every time they vote for them.

    KOLKATA: The ruling Trinamool Congress in West Bengal on Tuesday swept the civic polls, with Mamata Banerjee-led party wresting control of the Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC),while the CPM-led Left bloc regained some lost ground in North Bengal.

    The TMC won 71 Municipalities out of the state’s total 92 for which polls were held on April 25 while the Left Front won six, the Congress five and results for 10 indicated a hung verdict.

    However, the BJP failed to win any of of the Municipalities though its nominees won in some wards. In several Municipalities, there are no councillors from Opposition parties at all, with the TMC securing a landslide.
