Kolkata: The Left's humiliating loss in West Bengal has posed fresh questions on the leadership. Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee tendered his resignation before the Bengal governor even before the results were formally declared on Friday.

About 20 CPI-M ministers, who shared the same fate as Bhattacherjee, are struggling to come to terms with the Bengal poll results which they dub as "completely unexpected". The party's leadership makes no effort to hide the shock.

CPI-M Leader Goutam Deb said, "Buddhadeb Bhattacharya's defeat is hurting me too much. No other defeat, including my defeat is no shock to me. And I know Buddhada personally - he is a man of highest integrity."

The debacle has put the CPI-M in a position where it doesn't have a face to project by means of which it can take on Mamata Banerjee. The exceptions in the party - former health minister Surjya Kanta Mishra and former land and land reforms minister Abdur Rezzak Mollah - are two winners, one of whom may become the leader of the opposition in the state Assembly.

Mollah, however, has already launched a scathing criticism against Bhattacharjee and questioned his political efficiency to counter the Trinamool chief.

In its run up to the 20th party Congress next year, the CPI-M leadership has listed its priorities.

CPI-M Secretary, Biman Bose said, "We have to move for introspection and we have to raise the morale of party activists and supporters."

Leadership crisis is not the only issue that confronts the CPI-M. The party will also have to decide what role Buddhadeb Bhattacherjee will exactly play from here on since he also misses wearing the cap of the leader of opposition. With a section of party leadership already training guns on Bhattacherjee, the road ahead for him looks rough.
