Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister
Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee Wednesday refused to take questions on
the civic poll results that delivered a blow to the ruling
Left Front.

Asked if the results of the civic poll, widely seen as a
trend-setter for next year`s Assembly election, were on
expected lines, Bhattacharjee evaded any reply and left the
state secretariat in a huff.

CPI-M headquarters on Alimuddin Street wore a deserted
look after the results that gave Trinamool Congress a thumping
majority in the KMC.

In contrast, there was an air of jubilation in front of
Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee`s Kalighat residence
with party workers celebrating the massive victory.

Overjoyed Trinamool workers took out small victory
processions in some parts of the metropolis.
