Mamata Banerjee's TMC way ahead of BJP in West Bengal in Lok Sabha polls

Kolkata/IBNS: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress is marching way ahead of the Bharatiya Janata Party in West Bengal as the results for the Lok Sabha polls are coming out on Tuesday.

According to reports by local channels, the TMC is ahead in 31 seats, BJP in 9, Congress in 2 seats.

Krishnanagar, Jadavpur, Burdwan-Durgapur, Kolkata North, Kolkata South, Bishnupur are among the top seats where the TMC is leading.

The trends show a picture which is quite contrary to what was predicted in the exit polls.

The majority of the exit polls had predicted the BJP will emerge as the single largest party in the elections, which ran from April 19 to June 1.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had earlier claimed the BJP will gain havoc in West Bengal, which the saffron camp has never ruled.

Modi had predicted BJP's biggest gains will come from West Bengal, a state which his party has been aiming to bet on for several years.

TMC national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee had claimed his party will at least win 23 seats, one more than last Lok Sabha poll tally, in the worst case scenario.
