The State Assembly Elections
Mamata Banerjee is good to go to return as the Chief Minister of West Bengal for the third back-to-back term, with the TMC driving in more than 200 seats. Nonetheless, according to the Election Commission tally, Mamata has lost the Nandigram seat to BJP pioneer Suvendu Adhikari by 1,736 votes. In any case, an obligatory VVPAT check is in progress and results will be authoritatively reported solely after that.
While speaking to the press in the capital city of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee said, “This is a victory for the people of Bengal. I am proud to say that Bengal saved the country. The Election Commission behaved badly with us — they behaved like BJP’s spokesperson. BJP played dirty politics and lost the election.” She also said that covid is her first priority and she will work on it immediately.
She was congratulated by the Prime Minister himself. The PM said in a tweet, “Congratulations to Mamata Didi for @AITCofficial’s win in West Bengal. The Centre will continue to extend all possible support to the West Bengal Government to fulfil people’s aspirations and also to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic.”
