West Bengal by-polls: Babul Supriyo leading in Ballygunge seat

Kolkata:  Counting of votes for the by-polls to one Lok Sabha seat in West Bengal’s Asansol and a Assembly seat in Ballygunge are currently underway on Saturday.

Counting began at 8 am.

In  Ballygunge, by-poll became necessary after  state minister Subrata Mukherjee passed away last year.

As per initial reports, Supriyo is leading in the seat.

Supriyo is leading by more than 4,600 votes in Ballygunge.

“I'm confident. The over 40 per cent voters turnout here rubbishes opposition's unnecessary claim of false voting," he told the media.

In Asansol, the seat which became empty after Supriyo quit BJP to join the TMC, Agnimitra Paul is contrasting for the saffron brigade.

The Trinamool Congress has fielded another ex-BJP member and former Union Minister Shatrughan Sinha against Paul.

As per latest trends, Sinha is ahead of Paul.
