leave a comment »

The communist party lost the state elections in West Bengal for the first time in 34 years today: more than the lifetime of a large fraction of the voters. The long-anticipated winner is the Trinamool Congress. Here is the leader, Mamata Banerjee, delivering her victory speech: she speaks in English from 4:40 into the clip.

Elsewhere, in Tamil Nadu, Karunanidhi’s DMK was swept aside: it won only about 13% of the seats in the state assembly.
