New Delhi: Though the Left Front has been putting up a brave face in public regarding its electoral fortunes in Bengal and Kerala, it has conceded defeat in the Left bastion after the internal poll survey conducted by the ruling CPM revealed that the Left Front is all set to be thrown out of power in these states.

The only place of solace for them is Tamil Nadu, where it contested election as a junior ally of AIADMK.

The party survey in West Bengal, which has been sent to the Central Committee, has concluded that the 34-year-old Left rule in West Bengal is all set to crumble.

Enlisting the reasons for the downfall, the report has attributed its possible loss to Mamata Banerjee’s money and muscle power. The report added that Trinamool Congress created misconceptions in the minds of people.

In Kerala, the report attributed the delusion of Muslim voters from LDF as the reason for poor performance of the front.

However, the report says that Tamil Nadu can bring some breather for them. Left hopes to do well in the state on the back of Jayalalitha’s magic which is supposed to have clicked in Tamil Nadu.

According to the report, Jayalalitha will be successful in dethroning the Karunanidhi-led DMK government from the state.

CPI (M) came to power in West Bengal under the leadership of Jyoti Basu in 1977 and has gone strength to strength in the state since then. It suffered the first major jolt in 2009 after Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress did exceptionally well in Lok Sabha elections.
