@Shantanu De Roy... do you politically and/ or ideologically believe that, in a single State or in a number of States, Left-led Governments will live the life in eternity, where in Centre, the ruling party has been following the policy of serving the interest of big business and foreign capital ? In reality, one can not forecast the actual lifespan of such governments, you may agree or differ, but the fact remains that in a society ruled by the representatives of big bourgeoisie and feudal lords, in a State or two to three States in isolation, Left-Led governments can not exist in eternity. When the class struggle intensifies, the ruling class does not allow a left party to rule, to be in government and serve the working class and as such and leave no stone unturned in finding the ways of dislodging such governments.
In 2008, when the left parties took the decision of withdrawing support to UPA government, after it went ahead with the nuclear deal with imperialist USA, the class struggle reaches a new dimension and we all know about the aftermath.
In the last few years of rule of left-front govt. in Bengal, some political as well as organisational and administrative errors occured on the part of left parties and CPIM, in particular, and a section of left supporters deserted them. It is true, but that is not the only cause behind the defeat of Left- Front, in Bengal. Specifically, the uneven class struggle, in isolation, against the ruling class during a long period and which intensified in manyfold after withdrawing the support from UPA govt., directly challenging the forces of imperialism, led CPIM and Left in particular, towards a 'tight position', which prevails even now.
I do not pity your feelings and/or understandings, because you are one of the signatories to the much publicised statement and at the same time keeping faith in your political depthness, hope you will identify the political arguments from the above.
