The BJP had won 18 out of 42 Lok Sabha seats in West Bengal. On the other hand, Trinamool Congress (TMC) had won 22 seats. The Congress had won two seats.
West Bengal CM and TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee's fort is not going to leave any stone unturned to make a dent in the fort. Recently, several TMC leaders joined the BJP.
