The political situation in Kolkata is not any different from that of states in south.Communists remain in power in WB for the same reason as in Kerala .Same is the case DMK and AIADMK in TN. Oh btw as for me Kangreez == Commies (it is amusing that how people on forum have suddenly shifted goal posts for the love of the BUM).
Common man has same challenges to face and daily chores to complete whether he/she be from Kol or Chennai so their views about the GOI and its policies are independent of the ruling party in state.
However, your post seems to imply that views like mine explain why the jokers get elected to the parliament - that on the other hand is insulting one's intelligence indeed.
Infact I was just pointing out at how Kangreez and co manage to win over the electorate with a stray development such as ,this despite having commited numerous blunders that outweigh all the good that they have done till date.
In any event, I make my electoral decisions based on issues that I think are in the nation's interest. I am not wedded to any single party.
Nice thoughts, and appropriate too if national interest==nuclear deal.But the fact is there are too many and infact more important issues wrt National interests that need to be addressed apart from the N deal .
--my apologies to the members for derailing the thread .Having said that if Murthy saar wishes to continue discussion on this then we may take this to Indian Interests thread--
