Assembly Election 2021: First phase voting in Bengal and Assam tomorrow, know who is going to compete here

New Delhi : Assembly elections in five states are going to start tomorrow. On Saturday, the first phase of voting will be held under the assembly elections in West Bengal and Assam on Saturday. The local administration along with the Election Commission has completed almost all the preparations to conduct the elections peacefully.

The main competition is between TMC and BJP

On March 27, elections will be held for 30 seats in 5 districts of West Bengal. Out of these 30 seats, 4 seats are Dalit seats while 7 seats are tribal. Voting will be held in Purulia, Jhargram, Bankura, East Midnapore Part-1 and West Midnapore Part-1 tomorrow. Let me tell you that the main contest in the West Bengal elections is being considered between the Trinamool Congress and the BJP. Bengal currently has a Trinamool Congress government and Mamata Banerjee is the Chief Minister. In the last election, Mamata’s TMC won the maximum 211 seats, Congress 44, 26 left and BJP won only three seats. While others had won ten seats. It needs 148 seats for majority.

In the first phase of Bengal, BJP has fielded Sudip Mukherjee, who left the Congress in Purulia seat, in front of which Congress has placed bets on Pritam Banerjee and TMC on Sujay Banerjee. Two-time Congress MLA Nepal Chandra Mahato is trying his luck once again in Bangmundi seat, in front of Sushant Mahato from TMC, while BJP has left this seat for its ally AJSU, which has relied on Ashutosh Mahato.

The Kharagpur assembly seat is considered to be very high profile, which falls in the parliamentary constituency of BJP state president Dilip Ghosh. Here, a contest is being held between TMC’s Dineen Roy and BJP’s Tapan Bhuya. Against BJP’s Samit Kumar Das on the Mednipur seat, TMC has replaced actor Junay Maliha in place of its sitting MLA Mrigendranath Mayeti. Khejri seat is contested by BJP’s Santanu Pramanik and CPM’s Himangsu Das while TMC has fielded Partha Pritam Das in place of its MLA Ranjit Mandal.
