New Delhi: The Election Commission (EC) has released data on its behalf amid the counting of votes in West Bengal. According to these figures, TMC has got 49 percent votes in West Bengal (in the trends so far). At the same time, in terms of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), this figure seems to be reduced to 37 percent. Earlier, the Election Commission released the figures and said that the TMC had got 51 percent votes and the BJP got 35 percent votes.
Talking about the latest trends, TMC is leading in 197 seats out of total 292 seats in West Bengal, while BJP is leading in 92 seats. Thus, there has been a difference of 105 seats between TMC and BJP in the trends. While others are leading in just 2 seats.
Let us tell you that last time Mamata Banerjee had won 211 seats in the assembly elections. In such a situation, it is believed that the Modi wave has not made any significant difference to the performance of TMC in West Bengal. Let us know that even in its most accurate exit poll, News24 had told that TMC can win 180 (+ -11) seats in West Bengal.
Big news is coming from West Bengal amid the counting of votes in five states. Journalists have been called here near Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s house. However, it is difficult to say anything clearly here. But experts believe that these gestures matter in politics. In such a situation, it is believed that Chief Minister Banerjee can talk to journalists soon.
This is believed to be because the Trinamool Congress (TMC) seems to be taking a big lead in West Bengal in the trends. Out of total 292 seats here, a majority of 147 seats are required. Of these, TMC trends seem to be leading in 172 seats, which is more than the magic figure of the majority. At the same time, the BJP seems to be leading in 111 seats in West Bengal, which is much less than the majority. Other candidates are leading in 3 seats in the trends.
However, from the Nandigram seat in terms of TMC, there are not very good trends. Actually, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is lagging behind the trends coming from Nandigram, which is considered to be the hottest seat in these assembly elections. While his colleague Shuvendu Adhikari, who has joined the BJP, is leading from this seat. According to the latest trends, officials are leading their old ally Mamta Banerjee by about eight thousand votes after the second round of counting.
Apart from these Mamata Banerjee and Shuvendu Adhikari from Nandigram seat, CPIM candidate Meenakshi Mukherjee, Manoj Kumar Das of Socialist Unity Center of India (Communist) and Independents were Deepak Kumar Gayen, Subrata Bose, SK Saddam Hussain and Swapan Purua in the fray. Let us know that the Nandigram seat has been occupied by TM since 2009.
