Early trends of counting show TMC is leading in 25 seats against BJP in 15 seats. Amongst the constituencies in West Bengal, there are some constituencies which are being watched out keenly is due to the contestants who are red tagged for various reasons. One of the constituencies is Asansol, where the singer-turned politician Babul Supriyo is challenging TMCâ€™s Moon Moon Sen. To highlight, Asansol is one of the two constituencies BJP won in 2014 elections. As expected, BJPâ€™s Babul Supriyo is leading Asansol. It is also reported that Abhishek Banerjee nephew of Mamata Banerjee is leading in Diamond Harbor.
The other constituency which is instigating more interest is Jangipur which is headed by Abhishek Mukherjee son of Pranab Mukherjee as MLA. He managed to retain the constituency with a slender margin of 8315 votes in 2014. But this time trend is reversed where Khalilur Rahman of TMC is leading the constituency. Bardhaman-Durgapur is another being watched out where BJPâ€™s Ahluwalia is the current MP and the trend gets continued in this poll as well. In Jadhavpur constituency TMCâ€™s celebrity candidate Mimi Chakraborty is fielded against BJPâ€™s Anupam Hazra. The right strategy as of now where the actress Mini Chakraborty slightly leads against Hazra.
In Raiganj constituency, BJPâ€™s Deboshree Chowdhury is leading against congress Deepa Dasmunsi and Leftâ€™s Mohammed Salim. TMC swept the Kolkata constituencies with where in the North two-time MP Sudip Bandopadhyay is leading by 8010 votes against Rahul Sinha of BJP.
