Kerala voted the way it has been doing in many a years now during the assembly election. This year the state voted out Congress led - UDF and voted in LDF. A spirited performance by BJP led - NDA in the state could not arrest the LDF wave.
On the other hand Left and Congress alliance for West Bengal was routed badly by Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress.
