New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday congratulated West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee as the trends showed that the party is heading towards a landslide victory in the state.
“Congratulations to Mamata Didi for @AITCofficial’s win in West Bengal. The Centre will continue to extend all possible support to the West Bengal Government to fulfill people’s aspirations and also to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic,” the Prime Minister wrote on Twitter.
As per latest statistics, the All India Trinamool Congress (TMC) has won 195 seats and is leading on 21 while BJP is ahead on 8 seats and have so far won 67.
The Prime Minister further thanked the people of West Bengal who have blessed the saffron party. “From a negligible presence earlier, BJP’s presence has significantly increased. BJP will keep serving the people. I applaud each and every Karyakarta for their spirited effort in the polls,” Mr Modi wrote on Twitter.
