Trinamool Supremo during campaigning in Meghalaya remarked she was surprised to find rhythmic and musical names of people and villages, she also made a sound “kakoooo…oooo…”. The problem is politicians explore “beautiful people or places” just before elections and people understand this better today. It’s because of this, Trinamool has lost its opportunity in the north East.
In Tripura Trinamool failed to open its account and stood at zero seats. Both Supremo and nephew turned general secretary, Abhishek Banerjee made tall claims of the presence of Trinamool and its win in Tripura but they failed to understand the mood and sentiments of people.
The next state is Meghalaya, the party has won only five seats. Once again, both Supremo and Abhishek Banerjee made frequent visits by wasting money. Trinamool made tall claims of winning but today when the results have come it’s clear that the party has lost on the face value.
Back home in West Bengal, by polls took place in Murshidabad’s Sagardighi. Trinamool lost the seat to Left Front and Congress alliance. Sagardighi is quite significant as this constituency is Muslim dominated and Mamata Banerjee is known for her Muslim appeasement but the results are enough to prove that she has lost the faith and trust of the Muslims after what she did with Naushad Siddiqui. Bayron Biswas defeated Trinamool with record margin.
The results are enough to explain that Trinamool is fast losing its reach among the people in the state that had brought her in 2011. Also, the results should be a warning and a wake up call for Mamata Banerjee and her party before the Panchayat Polls knocking at the door. Trinamool must do an introspection and find out why people are suddenly drifting apart which is certainly not a healthy development.
