Didi Lost Nandigram But Won West Bengal

The Trinamool Congress (TMC) which scored a landslide victory in the elections were successful in consolidating the Muslim votes and that had a direct impact on the results of the election.
Of the 63 Muslim dominated assembly constituenties elections were held in 61 constituenties and the Trinamool Congress won 58 of them leaving two for the BJP and one for the Sanjukata Morcha. However, elections were held in 61 of these total 63 seats because elections in two districts – Samserganj and Jangipur – were deffered because of the death of candidates.
As per the data from Election Commission TMC is on its course to win over 210 seats in a 249 member assembly, while BJP is likely to win 77 seats. In the hotly contested Nandigram seat, BJP’s Suvendu Adhikari defeated his former party chief Mamata Banerjee in Nandigram. However, Mamata has moved the Election Commission requesting recounting of votes in the constituency.
When the results has been declared, Mamata Banerjee tweeted – ” I appeal to everyone to maintain peace and not indulge in any violence, we know BJP and central forces have tortured us a lot but we have to maintain peace. At present, we have to fight Covid-19″.
Incumbent West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will take oath for the third time on 5th May said senior Trinamool Congress leader Partha Chatterjee.
