So, while a few months ago observers were writing off the LF, the turnaround seems to be happening. General impatience with the bjp's economic policies is growing. And the man who replaced Basu has proved to be the Left's perfect usp.

I think the middle class in Bengal is now doing a rethink on the bjp's policies and the unpredictability of the Trinamul's leader Mamata Banerjee, and is thus in the process of overcoming its earlier aversion to the Left. This attitude is, however, yet to harden into a definite political pattern."
