Bengal bypolls: TMC leads in both Ballygunge and Asansol

Kolkata/IBNS: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress (TMC) has taken a lead in both Ballygunge assembly constituency and Asansol Lok Sabha seat, where byelections were held on Apr 12.

TMC candidate Babul Supriyo, a turncoat, is ahead of his nearest rival CPI-M's Saira Shah Halim by 8,109 votes at the end of the eighth round of vote counting.

BJP's Keya Ghosh is lagging behind in the fourth position.

The seat was left vacant after the demise of TMC veteran and West Bengal Minister Subrata Mukherjee.

In Asansol, TMC candidate and veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha is leading by around 17,000 votes at the end of the second round.

Sinha is ahead of his nearest candidate from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Agnimitra Paul.

The Asansol Lok Sabha constituency fell vacant after the resignation of Union Minister Babul Supriyo who jumped from the BJP to TMC last year.
