Kolkata, May 11 (UNI) ''It is our victory,'' West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee today said, soon after being declared elected from the Jadavpur assembly seat.

A jubiliant Chief Minister, whose party seems set for a staggering seventh consecutive term in office as counting for the just-concluded polls progresses, said his victory in the assembly elections was a manifestation of the people's faith in the Left Front.

''It is our victory...my win symbolises the faith reposed by the people in the CPI(M)'s policies,'' Mr Bhattacharjee told reporters.

He won the Jadavpur seat, defeating his nearest rival Deepak Kumar Ghosh of the Trinamool Congress by a margin of over 58,000 votes, ''I thank the voters for coming out in large numbers to exercise their franchise in favour of the Left Front,'' he added.
