On Board PM's Special Aircraft, May 28: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today said the election results of West Bengal and Kerala were a "telling manifestation" that Left parties have to learn "important lessons" about the functioning of the country's polity.
"Well, I am not an expert on Left politics. People of Kerala and West Bengal have spoken and that's a telling manifestation that left politics has also to learn important lessons about the functioning of our polity," Singh told reporters on his return from Africa after a six-day visit.
His comments came when asked about the election results of Kerala and West Bengal, which the Left parties lost. In Bengal, Left was ousted from power after 34 years. PTI
