Mamata Banerjee in her brief message to party workers said combatting COVID-19 will be her top priority
Elections to the 292 of the 294 seats Assembly seats across 23 districts of West Bengal were held in eight phases across from March 27 to April 29. Elections to two seats — Shamsherganj and Jangipur in Murshidabad district — have been postponed following the deaths of candidates.
The election assumed an extraordinary significance as the BJP, which after the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, gained a significant vote bank in the State, threw up a challenge to the ruling Trinamool Congress.
Thwarting the challenge posed by the BJP, the Trinamool Congress is poised to form the government in West Bengal with the BJP emerging as the principal opposition party. Former rulers Congress and the Left, which fought together failed to open their account.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said combating the COVID-19 situation will be the topmost priority of her government and dedicated her party’s resounding victory to the people of the State.
