Kolkata: The Election Commission (EC) has released data on its behalf amid the counting of votes in West Bengal.
According to these figures, TMC has got 49 percent votes in West Bengal (in the trends so far). At the same time, in terms of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), this figure seems to be reduced to 37 percent.
Earlier, the Election Commission released the figures and said that the TMC would get 51 percent and 35 percent votes for the BJP.
Talking about the latest trends, TMC is leading in 197 seats out of total 292 seats in West Bengal, while BJP is leading in 92 seats. Thus, there has been a difference of 105 seats between TMC and BJP in the trends. While others are leading in just 2 seats.
Last time Mamata Banerjee had won 211 seats in the 2016 assembly elections. In such a situation, it is believed that the PM Modi wave has not made any significant difference to the performance of TMC in West Bengal.
Even in its most accurate exit poll, News24 had told that TMC can win 180 (+ -11) seats in West Bengal.
