West Bengal Lok Sabha election result – Full list of winners: West Bengal seems to be headed for a saffron surge as the Bhartiya Janata Party in 19 Lok Sabha seats and the ruling All India Trinamool Congress (AITC) ahead in 22 out of 42 Lok Sabha constituencies in the state. In an embarrassment for the party leadership, the Congress party is leading in only one seat and the Left is yet to take a lead in any of the constituencies.
The exit polls had predicted that the BJP would breach TMC’s citadel in West Bengal and the saffron party’s tally would improve to double-digit numbers along with its best-ever vote share. It also suggested that the CPI vote share may also have shifted in BJP’s favor.
Soon after the trends began to pour in, West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee called for a complete review of the results as she wished the candidates. “Congratulations to the winners. But all losers are not losers. We have to do a complete review and then we will share our views with you all. Let the counting process be completed fully and the VVPATs matched,” she said.
During the poll campaigning, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has addressed 17 poll rallies, with focus on the issues of NRC and the Citizenship bill. EC trends suggest that the party is making substantial gains in areas close to the India-Bangladesh border.
