Left High and Dry

India Today - - UPFRONT -

From the deep hole the CPI(M) had dug for it­self in West Ben­gal, the party has been mak­ing some at­tempts to claw its way back up. On May 22, party work­ers led a ‘Ben­gal in dis­tress’ rally to Ma­mata Ban­er­jee’s state sec­re­tariat Na­banna. The rul­ing Tri­namool Congress, of course, dis­missed the ag­i­ta­tion out of hand, with one min­is­ter jok­ing that it was the Left that was in dis­tress, and even of­fered to send across a party worker or two to liven up the march.
