West Bengal for the past three years is being ruled by a woman Chief Minister. People had voted her to power with lot of expectations. However, the actual record of the Government is dismal and has failed to address the major concerns of the people. This is perhaps best exemplified by the huge increase in violence and atrocities against women in West Bengal.
In the 15th Lok Sabha, the Left Front had less number of MPs compared to the TMC, who contested the polls in alliance with the Congress. However, the performance of the Left MPs in the Lok Sabha in terms of attendance, participation in debates and the number of questions asked is far ahead compared to that of the TMC or the Congress. This only shows that it was the Left MPs who have consistently taken up important issues of the people on the floor of the house.
