Kolkata, Feb 6 (UNI) The Forward Bloc-sponsored 12-hour ''Bangla Bandh'' has added a new dimension to the Left politics in the state, according to West Bengal Congress working president Pradip Bhattacharjee today.

Talking to newsmen here, he said the bandh was total and spontaneous, adding all the Opposition parties, including the Congress, SUCI, Trinamool Congress, CPI(ML)-Liberation and Samajwadi Party had extended support to the bandh.

It had given jolt to the Left Front govenment in its 30-year rule, Mr Bhattacharjee said.

It was strange that the CPI(M)-led Left Front government was firing at their own partners and '' We feel a crack has already taken place in the Front, '' he asserted.

The state politics might undergo a radical change after this incident, he stated.

At least six people were killed and several injured when police fired to quell a 15,000-strong campaign Forward Bloc rallyists at Dinhata in Coochbehar yesterday.
