The ruling Trinamool Congress is going to form the government once again in West Bengal, according to the trends in the electoral counting released in four states and Union Territory of Puducherry. According to the Election Commission website, the Trinamool Congress has gained a huge edge over its nearest rival BJP in the trends in West Bengal. The Trinamool Congress was leading in 203 assembly seats, while BJP was leading in 81 assembly seats.
At the same time, a coalition of Left parties, Congress and Indian Secular Front (ISF) could gain an edge in just one seat. Meanwhile, Trinamool Congress poll strategist Prashant Kishore has come on the spot on social media, as both his prediction and claims are going to be correct. Prashant Kishore had predicted several months ago that the saffron party would not even cross the 100 mark in Bengal.
Prashant Kishore had predicted that the BJP would not cross 100 seats, and also announced that he would stop his work if he proved his point wrong. He had said that if the BJP got more than 100 seats in Bengal in this election, he would give up his profession as an electoral strategist and do some other work. Kishore had said that I will quit this job and you will not see me working for any other political campaign further.
At that time, Prashant Kishore had tweeted in which it was written that for the section of the pro (BJP) media which has kept the hype high, BJP in West Bengal will struggle to come in double digit. He further wrote that please save this tweet. If BJP does better than this, then I will leave this place.
Prashant Kishore’s prediction seems to be true, though he has retired from electoral work nonetheless. Prashant Kishore has told that he will no longer do this work. That is, the election management work that Prashant Kishor had been doing for a long time, now he has announced his retirement.
After two steps, the state Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was trailing her BJP rival Suvendu Adhikari by 3,775 votes in Nandigram seat. Nandigram was chosen by Mamata Banerjee leaving her Bhawanipur seat to challenge Suvendu. Now it has to be seen who the public has shown confidence in here. Legislative Assembly elections were held in West Bengal in 8 phases. There were elections in 292 seats in 294 seats.
Two Bengal seats, Shamsherganj and Jangipur, were not held as the Congress candidate in Shamsherganj seat and RSP candidate from Jangipur seat died. Centers have been set up in Bengal to count 1,113 votes. TMC activists have started celebrating in Kolkata in view of the trends in the West Bengal assembly elections. To this, the Election Commission said that the Chief Secretaries of the concerned state have been asked to take immediate action to stop such meetings.
