Votes are being counted today for the election to the legislative assembly of West Bengal. The assembly election was spread over eight rounds of polling for a month amid the deadly second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Will BJP take Bengal?
The BJP, which had just three seats in the 294-member assembly after the polls and went to win 18 out of 42 seats in the 2019 Lok Sabha election, had pulled out all the stops in the West Bengal in a determined bid to oust Mamata Banerjee, a vocal critic of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and add another state to its tally of 17.
