Regionalism is one of the most important phenomenons currently colonizing political science and the world of social science as a whole. India has always been diverse in every way. Let it be social stratifications, culture, languages and of course political parties. We have seen many regional parties and their ideologies in India creating new trends over the last few decades, which are increasingly blurring the line between Global and Local. But how concrete are these ideations? What can be their long-term implications on the democratic processes of this nation? This article discusses one such exceedingly aggressive ideology originating in West Bengal, which has proven to be a suitable opposition to the ruling party at the Union, thus providing interesting potential for research, not only including the concept of ideology but also the possible return to a more decentralised federal structure in India.
