The West Bengal election results are underway, and the battle between two major political parties is live. TMC takes on BJP in this competition, and Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is likely to hold her position for another tenure.
The election this time was the battle between TMC and BJP. While exit polls showed that Mamata Banerjee was up to her toughest battle this year, the results say something different. TMC has won 219 seats out of 294, sealing victory in the state. This is a legendary victory, because BJP sowed lots of potential earlier. Also, this will be her third consecutive term as the Chief Minister of West Bengal.
BJP could only secure a total of 71 seats, which is a disappointment for the party. The Union Home Minister Amit Shah promised enquiries about the poor performance. Mamata Banerjee has secured Nandigram, defeating Suvendu Adhikari, which was a real contest. Mamata Banerjee has received praises and congratulations from a lot of people, including Defence Minister Rajnath Sigh and Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut.
