Possibility of CPI(M) in Loksabha,Congress Lagged Behind

why Communist Party of India(Marxist) is continuously governing the state of Tripura while red Left seems to be fading away in several states ?This is a grave and serious matter of thinking for which we have to enter into the root of thought in social,political ground of the state.This is a fact that the state has succeeded its literacy rare even better than other so called learned states.It is competing Kerala in this field.Literacy rate of this state is over 90% which is a real success.Besides this left government succeeded to control the tribal problems .This government has given emphasize on the basic needs and better improvement of the tribals.Left has also published their aims and objectives for the tribal in their manifesto.Above all honourable Chief Minister of the state ,Mr Manik Sarkar is someone whom most of the people respect for his simplicity.Mr Manik Sarkar is a simple man with simplicity.He has not earned rupees illegally.He prefers himself to be the same one who was before coming into power in Manik Sarkar.He is now as he was before coming into power .He is the symbol of honesty.People believe in him.He resembles a common man.What is the trouble of this Government is unemployment issue.according to National sample Survey Office the rate of employment in Tripura is 46.6% while over all average in India is 54.4% .There is no strong opposition in Tripura.There is Congress in Tripura as the opposition but it is not as strong as in the centre.There is no sign of Bharatiya Janata Party in spite of Modi waves in India.To find out aam Aadmi Party ,combing operation has to be executed.So voter has no option except Communist Party of India.So it Left Front is expected to come again with victory in Parliamentary Constituency or Loksabha.
