Assembly Elections 2021: BJP underperforms in all the states:- The counting for the Assembly polls which took place last month commenced and concluded yesterday. BJP which is ruling the Indian government underperformed in all the states. The ruling party received a huge jolt in West Bengal and AITC led by Mamata Banerjee showed complete majority in the polls and won 213 constituencies out of the 294 seats. There was huge confusion in Nandigram where Mamata contested. The Election Commission initially announced that Mamata won in the constituency but later the BJP candidate Suvendu Adhikari was announced. The recounting is happening and Mamata is in plans to approach the court soon.
BJP pinned many hopes in Tamil Nadu and Kerala but the ruling party hardly made any impact. DMK won the battle in Tamil Nadu and will form the government with 133 seats and AIADMK had to settle with 66 seats. BJP had to adjust with just 4 seats and Congress is in third place with 18 seats in Tamil Nadu. CPM retained the government back in the 2021 Assembly polls with 62 seats out of the 140 constituencies. Congress is in second place while CPI bagged the third place. In Assam, BJP stood in the top slot with 60 seats out of the 126 seats. On the whole, BJP received a huge shock in the recent polls. Here are the total number of seats and the results in five states:
West Bengal Results: 294 seats
Tamil Nadu Results: 234 seats
Kerala Results: 140 seats
Assam Results: 126 seats
Puducherry: 30 seats
