Kolkata: Trinamool Congress supremo and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, on Thursday, said that all losers are not losers after admitting the victory of NDA in the Lok Sabha polls. She also congratulated the winning candidates of the polls while stressing on the need of a complete review of it.
“Congratulations to the winners. But all losers are not losers. We have to do a complete review and then we will share our views with you all. Let the counting process be completed fully and the VVPATs matched”, she wrote on her Twitter handle.
As per the latest figures released by the Election Commission of India, Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress (TMC) is leading over 22 seats in West Bengal while the BJP is leading on 19 seats. The early trends suggest that despite the aggressive campaign led by Banerjee against the BJP in the state, the saffron party has made deep inroads into the TMC bastion.
The TMC had won 34 of 42 Lok Sabha seats in 2014 while the BJP could win in only two constituencies.
