Help Congress-led coalition leads in state election count
#1
Advertisement
India's ruling Congress-led coalition was leading in the key state of West Bengal, ruled by communists for more than three decades, as votes from state elections were counted on Friday.

A good showing for Congress may restore some lost political authority for Prime Minister Manmohan Singh after the country's worst ever corruption scandal has paralysed the government for months and hit foreign investment in Asia's third largest economy.

The vote may define how aggressively the government moves ahead with long-awaited reforms such as raising fuel prices and a land acquisition bill for farmers.

The Congress alliance was leading in 163 seats out of the 294 seats at stake in the West Bengal state assembly, with the communists ahead in 65 seats, TV stations said.

But the coalition may lose in the national swing state of Tamil Nadu after its regional ally, the DMK, became embroiled in the telecoms graft case that may have cost the government up to $39 billion.

also in Kerala they are not able to maintain a clear lead. Both the UDF (congress led parties) and LDF (Left front) are winning neck to neck -first time in kerala history.!!

As far as West Bengal is concerned, the entire credit should go to Mamatha. Congress doesn't have an iota of impact.

Same in case of Kerala also. Even though UDF won by narrow margin of 4 seats (72-68), the group parties have fared well comparing the congress candidates.!!
