Analysis

According to DNA newspaper's analysis: "BJP emerged as a potential force in West Bengal where it is traditionally considered weak.". While BJP won only 2 seats, BJP candidates for the first time, returned runner-up in 3 seats and it also got 16.8% vote share - BJP's best performance so far surpassing its previous best of 11.66% in 1991 elections. However. Trinamool Congress dominated the election winning 34 seats. The CPI-M led Left Front was decimated winning only 2 seats as the BJP made inroads in its vote share. It was also argued that, ""resurgence of the Left can never be ruled out"[4]
