A day after its poor show in the by-poll to Kanthi Dakshin assembly seat in West Bengal, CPM state secretary Surya Kanta Mishra today admitted that LF supporters may have voted for BJP which resulted in the defeat of the Left party. "It seems that the Left supporters who had voted for our candidates earlier have not voted for us this time. They are so desperate in removing Trinamool Congress that they opted to vote for BJP," Mishra told newspersons here. "Not only the Left Front supporters, but voters of other parties including those from the ruling party where there is internal feud have voted for BJP," he said.
