2021 West Bengal Legislative Assembly election Intro articles: 2

Background

Electoral system

Outlined in Article 168 of the Constitution of India, the West Bengal Legislative Assembly is the only house of the unicameral legislature of West Bengal and not a permanent body and subject to dissolution.[4] The tenure of the Legislative Assembly is five years from the date appointed for its first sitting unless dissolved sooner. Members of the Legislative Assembly are directly elected by the people. The tenure of current West Bengal Legislative Assembly is scheduled to end on 30 May 2021.[5]

Previous general election

In the previous elections in 2016, the All India Trinamool Congress (AITC or TMC) retained its majority in the Legislative Assembly with 211 seats. The Indian National Congress won 44 seats and the Left Front won 33 seats fighting within an alliance. While the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha managed to win only 3 seats each of the total 294 seats.[6]

Political developments

In the 2019 general elections AITC won 22 and the BJP won 18 of the 42 Lok Sabha seats in West Bengal.[7] Bagging 40 percent of the vote share, an increase from the previous time and in by-elections from 2016 to 2021, BJP had also increased their seats in the legislative assembly by 31 as of 2021 through defections from TMC, Congress and Left leaders.[8] According to various political analysts, the shifting of left and other opposition voters towards the BJP caused the meteoric rise in BJP's vote share.[9][10][11]

Political issues

COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic became an election issue.[12][13] The Government of West Bengal was accused of "fudging" the count of positive cases and deaths in the regions.[14] The AITC-led state government and BJP-led union government blamed each other for the surge in COVID-19 infections over the course of the campaign.[15]

The BJP accused Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee of not having attended COVID-19 emergency management meetings held during the months of election campaigning, despite the advent of the second wave of infections.[16]

Cyclone Amphan

Post Cyclone Amphan situation of Deshbandhu park in Kolkata.

In May 2020, Cyclone Amphan hit the state a year before elections.[17][12] After the passing away of the cyclone, widespread allegations of mismanagement[18] and relief scam were seen.[19][20] Protest broke out in various district of the state over these allegations.[21][22] The opposition made it an election issue ahead of the Assembly polls.[23][24]

Citizenship, immigration and refugee issues

In 2019, the Bharatiya Janata Party-led Union Government passed the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019 (CAA) in the Indian Parliament, promising citizenship to immigrants and refugees belonging from the religious minorities in Bangladesh and hoping to provide them with rehabilitation.[8][25] The BJP's Bengali booklet released in January 2020 claimed that the National Register of Citizens will be implemented to identify allegedly undocumented illegal Muslim immigrants, but religiously persecuted Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Christian, Jain, Parsi and other religious minorities will be "shielded" by the Citizenship Amendment Act.[26][27]

Other issues

Polarisation amongst various religious, linguistic and caste communities are also likely to play a role in this election.[28] Both TMC and BJP have promised schemes for various communities.[29][30] Although previously mobilized by Left governments against elites under the 'class' narrative, the Dalits of West Bengal have started asserting their identity politically.[31][32][33] Religious polarization is particularly intense in districts bordering Bangladesh such as North 24 Parganas. Arguments regarding who are native to the state and constituencies are also likely to impact the elections.[34][35][36] Rebellion and dissatisfaction of many Trinamool leaders are also likely to impact the elections.[37]
