New Delhi : DMK Leader MK Stalin, who coalition secured victory in 158 seats, will take oath as Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu on May 7. The swearing in ceremony of the new government led by his party would be simple due to Covid-19. DMK MP Kanimozhi said that its time that centre must understand that it can’t take states for granted and infringe on the rights of the state.
Chief minister Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress (TMC) scored a landslide win in the keenly watched assembly elections in West Bengal, MK Stalin’s Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) returned to power in Tamil Nadu after a decade, and Kerala’s Left government scripted history by winning two consecutive terms on Sunday, putting an end to a month-long polling exercise that was held under the shadow of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Belying all expectations, the TMC headed for a landslide victory in West Bengal assembly elections, overcoming the might of the BJP and secured victory in 214 seats out of 292 constituencies while the BJP managed to secure victory in 76 seats. In the keenly-watched Nandigram seat, aide-turned-rival Suvendu Adhikari defeated Mamata by 1,956 votes following several flip-flops over the results.
