Criticising the TMC and chief minister Mamata Banerjee for depriving people's right by not allowing them to cast their votes, he said the current results showing 99% of the seats belonging to the TMC, isn't the actual situation.

Bankura gram panchayat: TMC leading in 912 seats seats, BJP leading in 35 seats, Left Front leading in 19 and Independents in 3 seats.

The panchayat poll was held in 621 zilla parishad, 6,123 panchayat samiti and 31,802 gram panchayat seats in 20 West Bengal districts on May 14.

The counting of votes for West Bengal Panchayat election 2018 results will begin from 7 am onwards today.

KOLKATA Trinamool Congress took major lead in Bengal's panchayat poll results, and is set to sweep in the three-tier West Bengal panchayat polling system, the counting for which is underway since Thursday morning.

BJP emerged as the main challenger to the TMC in gram panchayat in nearly every districts except Murshidabad and Malda, the two Congress strongholds. "Had the elections been fair, we would have performed better", he said. Independent candidates made big gains by winning 1,614 GP seats and leading in another 33.

According to political analysts, the electoral success of the independent candidates point at the growing factional clashes within the ruling party, an issue that has to be tackled by TMC in the wake of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections and the 2021 Assembly elections in which further growth of BJP and decimation of Left and Congress is expected.
