West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee on 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.
