Kolkata, Mar 7 (UNI) Left Front Chairman Biman Bose today made it clear that the landslide victory in the Tripura Assembly election smacked of people's support to the Left's alternative policy.
Reacting to the result, Mr Bose, also the West Bengal CPI(M) State Secretary, in a statement here said the Left had not only retained its traditional vote bank, but had also eaten into the votes of the Congress.
The Left leader said the Congress had not only indulged in an ''opportunistic politics'', but had also made an alliance with the terrorist outfits.
'' The people of Tripura have rejected the economic policies of the Centre as well, '' he averred.
'' We have achieved a hattrick in Tripura, Kerala and West Bengal, '' he observed.
He called upon the people to celebrate the victory across the state.
Mr Bose congratulated the people for coming forward to exercising their franchise defying the shadow of terrorism and said the mandate indicated the defeat of the sinister forces.
The Left Front, comprising the CPI(M), RSP and CPI, chalked out its consecutive fourth victory in the state garnering two-third majority bagging 49 out of the 60 seats.
