Primarily a Communist party forte, West Bengal Elections have always had an impact on the prospectsective winner of the Lok Sabha Elections. West Bengal has been ruled by the Left Front (majorly CPM), for the past 30 years, making it the world's logest running communist Government which has been democratically elected. West Bengal has 42 Parliamentary constituencies, and this time the Commnist parties of West Bengal, CPI and CPM, have vowed not to support a Congress led Government. It must be recalled, that after the 2004 elections, Congress was able to come to power only because of the support of 29 MP's from CPI and CPM, but both CPI and CPM took the support away when Congress went ahead with its Nuclear deal with USA.

With the formation of the Third Front, and expectations of support from NCP in Maharashtra and the 4th front in Bihar & Uttar Pradesh, CPI-CPM expects that if they are able to deliver a good show in West Bengal, they can have a shot at forming the next Governemnt. Ready to spoil their party in West Bengal is a re-charged Congress and the fire-brand Mamta Banerjee's Trinamool Congress. However, the build up to the polls haven't been too favourable for Trinamool as it's commonly perceived to be the chief force behind Tata's taking their Nano Car project outside Singrur, West Bengal. This, in effect, has caused a lot of resentment among the natives, as they all dreamt of industrialization and better future. Traditionally, BJP has found no takers here, and it'd be hoping to at least open its tally in 2009.

So, will the West Bengal voters vote for Trinamool for standing for the farmer's rights, as Mamta Banerjee puts it, or will they vote for the CPM-CPI, for leaving the Congress in the interest of the nation, as CPI-CPM says? Also, it is being said that the Muslim voters will go against the Lleft this time as they believe Left hasn't repaid them for their support over the years. Besides, with Nitish Kumar's JD U candidates in fray, a powerful slogan has emerged which says "In just three and a half years, Nitish Kumar has given to the Muslims what the Left could not provide in 30 years." Will all this have an actual impact on Left's vote? We will only find out when the election results are out on 16th May.

Polling Date for 42 West Bengal Constituencies are 30th April and 7th & 13th May '2009.
