After 34 years of Left rule and coming to energy with the large assist of the voters of your entire state, folks have turn into disgusted with the Trinamool authorities in the previous few years.

Since coming to energy in 2011, the cultural heritage of Bengal has been shocked by the conduct of Trinamool. Due to this, they’ve misplaced a lot of the huge public assist they got here to energy with.
