West Bengal, ruling Trinamool Congress has retained power for the third term in a row but Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee lost her own Nandigram seat.
Trinamool Congress has won 209 seats and leading at 4 seats. BJP has won 76 seats and is leading at one seat. BJP’s Suvendu Adhikari defeated Mamata Banerjee by a margin of 1,956 votes in the key Nandigram constituency.
United Front – an alliance of Left Front, Congress and the newly formed Indian Secular Front, failed miserably. For the first time since Independence, CPI-M has scored a duck in West Bengal
