Basically BJP could not able to establish much popularity due to their poor performance or lack of potential alliance in those states.

Sorry I beg to differ, because It has not captured power in west bengal, it is the TMC which has captured, though in alliance with congress, because mamta appears to be a cleaner choice, in Kerala, actually the congress has lost the plot, because of corruption charges, against UPA, R B Pilla, its constituent in UDF, then the sex scam of Kunjalikutty, another alliance partner, because in January 2011, it was expecting to get around 100-110 seats, its in Assam that it has got a wonderful victory, and that too, because the TINA factor, which means there is no alternate, as the opposition is splintered, and the Bangladeshi refugees wanted the congress to remain in power

BJP dose not even have a toe hold in any of these states that went for polls. BJP was expected to be only an also ran in these states. BJPs strength is in the cow belt. It did reasonable well in Bihar election some months back where it won 91 seats Scam did hit Congress in Tamilnadu, Pondi and Kerala. In Tamilnadu and Pondi - Congress and its allies which did so well in the Lok Sabha polls in 2009 had to bite the dust In Tamilnadu and Podi in the current election. This is totally the scam effect. Kerala it just managed to scarp through with a wafer thin margin. This victory would have have been larger had it not been for the scam. Moreover the infighting within CPM in Kerala to some extent enabled Congress and its allies to win a few extra seats. As for Assam, Congress is very soft and protective towards the illegal immigrants from Bangla Desh. Many of these illegal immigrants, have managed to get ration cards and voter ID and have been voting en mass for the Congress. So scam or n ...more

BJP has no presence in West Bengal. Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Congress but for the alliance too has no presence in both WB and TN. In any state to win an elections one needs a Mass leader which is absent in both the major parties. Even in Karnataka where BJP is reeling there is no leader worth a mention with Congress and thats the reason inspite all the problems with BJP its not able to take head on. Deve Gowda of JDS for all reasons include caste has base only in small pockets of south Karnataka. To ensure a presence and win elections each party has to groom a second rung leaders which both parties are not doing. For example imagine BJP without Modi in Gujarat or JD U without Nitish in Bihar or Sheela dixit in Delhli...... all the parties become headless chickens!!!

BJP's earlier avatar of Bharathiya Jan Sangh started from WB with a gigantic leader called Shyam Prasad Mukerjee. After him they have not produced any leader worth a mention. Kerala and Assam is no different. Even now can ...more

WB result was a forgone conclusion and Congress role there will just be of a clapping boy. In TN, they will conveniently take shelter under Ms. Jaya's shadows. If they had won in Pondi (or even managed to get deposit amount in Kadappa), one could have said they have done well in this election.
Their win in Kerala will most likely lead to most corrupt rule as they will be too much dependent on their regional allies.
In all of these states, BJP was never a force to reckon with.

Out of all the looters, Congress Party seems to be better and comfortable for the people of India. After all it is the mandate of people and have to give respect in a democratic set up.

BJP was never in power in these states of TN, WB, Kerala and Assam. Except Assam they have not have any M.L.A. So for them it is only to get entry to legislative assemblies of these states.
