It is notable that elections for 294 seats of the West Bengal Legislative Assembly are scheduled to be held between 27 March to 29 April 2021 in 8 phases.
In 2011, Trinamool Congress (TMC) supremo Mamata Banerjee ended the Left Front’s 34-year rule and formed the government by winning 227 seats in the 294-member Assembly in alliance with the Congress and Socialist Unity Centre of India (Communist). TMC itself won 184 seats.
Now, the BJP is aiming to end Mamata Banerjee led TMC government’s 10-year rule and form the first BJP government in West Bengal.
