The trends in the West Bengal assembly elections have cleared the political picture of the state as a whole. Mamta Banerjee’s government seems to be forming once again in Bengal. If Bengal’s trends turn into final results, West Bengal will have a hat-trick of Mamata Banerjee’s TMC win and the victory dream will be no less than a major setback for the BJP. From the trends so far, it is clear that the prediction of electoral strategist Prashant Kishor is seen to be true, because the Bharatiya Janata Party has not been able to cross the three digits i.e. 100.
According to the Election Commission website, the trends so far have seen the Trinamool Congress leading in 201 seats, while the Bharatiya Janata Party is on 78 seats. The Congress is ahead in one seat and the other three seats. However, so far there has been a trend of 284 seats out of 292. But it is expected that there will not be much change in the results. If this trend continues, then BJP seats will increase compared to the last election, but Prashant Kishore’s prediction will also prove to be true.
In fact, in West Bengal, Trinamool Congress electoral strategist Prashant Kishor has publicly announced several times that he will quit his job if the Bharatiya Janata Party seats in Bengal cross 100. When he made this announcement on Twitter for the first time, some of his iPAC colleagues claimed that PK was talking about quitting Twitter. But recently, Prashant Kishore, who had become an advisor to Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder, had made it clear in an interview with news channel Aaj Tak that he would quit the job of election strategist. He had said that if BJP gets 100 seats, then their work is of no use.
Significantly, there are 294 assembly seats in West Bengal, but due to the death of two candidates, the voting was held on 292 seats. The party which will cross the magic figure of 147 seats with a majority will put up a claim to form the government. So far TMC is leading with 200 seats. This means that if there is not much change in the results, then TMC government will be formed in Bengal once again. The last time i.e. in the 2016 assembly elections, Mamata Banerjee’s party got 211 seats. At the same time, Congress got 44 seats, CPI-M got 26 and BJP got just 3 seats.
What gestures did the exit polls of Bengal
In the exit poll, Mamata Banerjee’s party TMC government was once again formed in West Bengal. However, the case here was 50-50, as half of the channel-agencies had predicted a large number of seats for the BJP and claimed to be the single largest party. According to ABC Nielsen-C voter survey, TMC can get 152 to 164 seats in the state. At the same time, the BJP, which claims to have won more than 200 seats, will get 109 to 121 seats. In the poll of Republic TV-CNX exit poll, BJP had expected to get 138 to 148 seats. At the same time, Mamta Banerjee’s TMC can get 128 to 138 seats. The Left and Congress can get 11 to 21 seats.
