The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) lost to the ruling Trinamool Congress in the Indian state of West Bengal despite Modi’s exertion.
According to the latest election results, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s party has won more than 200 seats out of 294, while the BJP has won 65 seats.
However, the biggest upset in the election is that Trinamool Congress chief and two-time chief minister Mamata Banerjee has lost her seat to a BJP member from Nandigram.
According to the report, she has lost by 1736 votes and the Election Commission has also rejected the request for a recount.
It may be recalled that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, former BJP president and current home minister Amit Shah and several senior party leaders had addressed election rallies in West Bengal and made loud claims of BJP’s victory.
On the other hand, during the election results, people blew up Coronavirus restrictions during the celebrations and took to the streets without masks and danced without social distance.
On the other hand, in another state, Tamil Nadu, the BJP’s ally has been defeated, which has thwarted the BJP’s ambitions to rule the state.
