Mamata has edge in West Bengal, DMK to sweep TN, Left win expected in Kerala: Exit polls
Mamata Banerjee has an edge in Bengal and her Trinamool Congress could win 152 of the state’s 294 seats with the BJP not far behind at 130 seats, says NDTV’s exit polls on state elections that were held alongside a steep rise in Covid cases across the country.
An aggregate of six exit polls predicts that Mamata Banerjee will make it past the half-way mark, enough to win a third straight term. However, the BJP's projected tally is significant in a state where it had so far been an outlier. In Tamil Nadu and Kerala, DMK and Left to forms governments respectively.
