Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party has faced severe humiliation in Maharashtra turmoil by believing Ajit Pawar blindly. Increasing their agony, they have lost all three constituencies in West Bengal by-polls. Guess who is on the other side? The lady who welcomes every chance to slam BJP with two hands, Mamata Banerjee.
West Bengal CM and TMC party chief Mamata Banerjee went down heavily on BJP said that the BJP is getting paid back for its "arrogance", after the party lost in three state Assembly by-polls. "We dedicate this victory to the people of Bengal. This is a victory in favor of secularism and unity," she added. TMC won the by-polls in Kaliaganj, Karimpur, and Kharagpur Sadar.
Earlier, BJP won as many as 18 seats in the Lok Sabha Polls and Mamta settled the scores with this clean sweep. More ever, this is the first time that TMC has won from Kaliaganj constituency. Tapan Deb Sinha of the TMC won the Kaliaganj seat by defeating his nearest rival Kamal Chandra Sarkar of the BJP by 2,417 votes, EC officials said.
TMC candidate Pradip Sarkar won the by-poll to Kharagpur Sadar seat by defeating BJP's Prem Chandra Jha by 20,788 votes. The ruling party has also taken an unassailable lead in Karimpur with its candidate Bimalendu Sinha Roy leading over BJP's Jay Prakash Majumdar by over 23,000 votes.
