Q.

It is apprehended, leftists strength in both Kerala and W. Bengal put together will be around 30 i.e. a loss of 50 % from the present strength. In Bengal they could have retained 15/20 more seats if they did not alienate Congress and in that case Congress would have fought separately & not in alliance with Trinamool and anti-leftists votes would have been divided leaving a free playing ground for the leftists. So parting company with Congress and creation of Third Front could prove to be the downfall of the leftists in general and Prakash Karat in particular. Your take on this.

Excellent assessment of political situation in Kerala and West Bengal. Prakash Karat\'s gamble may not pay. Moreover, the third front partners are already running for positions and are likely to desert the leftists. Prakash Karat may even lose his position in the party.
