BJP to win more seats than Mamata's TMC in Bengal in Lok Sabha polls, several exit polls predict

New Delhi/IBNS: In what would be a massive jolt to West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, her Trinamool Congress may get trounced by the Bharatiya Janata Party in the Lok Sabha elections, several exit polls have claimed.

As per the majority of exit polls, the BJP is likely to emerge as the single largest party in the state for the first time.

As per ABP-C Voter, the BJP is likely to win 23-27 seats, TMC 13-17 seats and Left-Congress 1-3.

According to P-Marq, the BJP might win 22 seats, TMC 20 seats.

NDTV-Jan Ki Baat exit poll has predicted the BJP might win something between 21 and 26 seats while the TMC is likely to get 16-18.

On the contrary, TV9 has predicted the TMC will win 24 seats while the BJP 17 seats, Congress 1 out of 42 Lok Sabha seats.

If the majority of the exit polls hold true, then the TMC's tally might go down below what they had got in 2009 Lok Sabha elections, when Mamata was out of power.

In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Mamata's TMC received a jolt with its tally going down from 34 to 22 while the BJP saw its meteoric rise with 2 to 18.

What exit polls predict nationally?

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to return for a record-equalling third term in office with the BJP-led NDA alliance set to get a thumping majority defeating the combined opposition's INDIA Bloc, according to the exit poll results after the seventh and final phase of polling in the country on Saturday.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) can garner around 350 or more seats while the  INDIA bloc led by the united opposition is likely to get 125 to 150 seats, the exit polls indicate.

Amid a slogan to win over 400 seats in the 543-member Parliament, the exit polls give a massive mandate for a third Modi term.

According to the Republic-PMARQ poll, NDA will win 359 seats and INDIA bloc around 154 followed by 30 by others, while Republic-Matrize poll projects upto 368 seats for the saffron bloc.

Matrize project said the NDA is likely to get 353-368 seats while the INDIA bloc will get 118-133 seats. Others will get 43-48 seats.

Exit poll by India News-D-Dynamics projected 371 seats for the Modi-led BJP and NDA alliance.

NDTV India-Jan Ki Baat has suggested 362-392 seats for the BJP-led NDA and between 141 and 161 seats for the INDIA bloc.
