TMC's Mahua Moitra, who was expelled from Parliament, leads by over 50k + votes from Bengal's Krishnanagar

Kolkata/IBNS: Trinamool Congress' fiery leader Mahua Moitra, who was expelled from Parliament over alleged cash-for-query case, is set for a stormy comeback into Lok Sabha.

Moitra is ahead of her nearest rival, BJP's Amrita Roy, in West Bengal's Krishnagar constituency by over 57,000 votes.

In some visuals, Moitra was seen joining the celebrations by her party workers.

Speaking to the reporters, Moitra said, "This is a vote against Modi. I salute to people of Bengal. They have shown the way."

Moitra apparently faced a tough fight in Krishnanagar where Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself campaigned for his party.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee campaigned extensively for Moitra, who is known for her fiery speeches against the Modi government in Parliament.

Moitra's success is a reflection of how TMC performed in the Lok Sabha polls as Mamata's party is leading in 29 out of 42 seats as opposed to BJP's 12 and Congress 1.
