Convincing win by TMC in civic polls

Trinamool Congress registered a resounding victory in the civic polls in West Bengal by winning eight of the 12 municipal bodies across the state, barely two months after consolidating its position in rural voters in the panchayat polls.

The Congress stood a distant second winning two municipalities and Left Front came third by winning only one.

‘The Trinamool Congress has won in municipalities of Balurghat, Bardhaman, Gushkhara, Dugrajpur, Panihati, Habra, Diamond Harbour and Chakdah,’ State Election Commission secretary Tapas Roy said.

Congress won in Haldibari and Dalkhola municipal bodies with Left winning in Mekhiliganj.

The result was hung in Alipurduar municipal body as no party could reach the majority mark.

It is a huge victory for TMC particularly in Chakdah municipality in Nadia district and Burdwan in Burdwan district, known as Left citadel. In Burdwan Municipality, the TMC won all the 35 wards.

In the last civic polls in 2008, the Left Front had 30 wards in its fold.
