According to the Times Now-VMR Exit Poll, the BJP is expected to win 11 Lok Sabha seats in West Bengal with a greater vote share than it received in the 2014 general elections, which is nine more than its 2014 tally of 2 seats. The poll predicts that the saffron party will also see a significant increase in vote share.
Initial results of the News18-IPSOS exit poll, Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress is predicted to be the single-largest party in West Bengal, expected to triumph in 25-28 seats. The BJP is expected to pick up three to seven seats, which is an improvement from the two it won last time around. The Left parties, meanwhile, are predicted to have put in a dismal performance, failing to open their account in the state they ruled for 34 years.
