After ABP Ananda, C Voter predicted that Mamata Banerjee's TMC will retain power in West Bengal with a comfortable majority. It predicts 168 seats for the ruling party. The Left-Congress combine significantly improve their tally with 120 seats, according to this poll.

Just like ABP Ananda, C Voter presents a grim picture for the BJP in West Bengal. Disproportionate to BJP's campaign in West Bengal, the exit poll predicts a mere four seats for the party.

ABP Ananda's predictions

Despite a sting operation and a flyover collapse in the heart of Kolkata, Mamata Banerjee will retain power in West Bengal, predicts ABP Ananda. The poll gives a comfortable lead of 178 seats to the incumbent party.

The BJP, which had tried to attack Mamata Banerjee on all grounds from Sharada chit fund scam to Narada sting where top TMC leaders were caught taking bribes could manage only one seat.

The Left-Congress combine together muster 110 seats. In 2011, the Congress and Left separately had 42 and 40 seats, respectively. Going by ABP Ananda's predictions, the coming together of these two parties has helped in slightly improving their overall tally.

India Today-Axis predicted a massive majority for Mamata Banerjee's AITC in West Bengal. According to the exit poll, the party will register an even bigger win than its 2011 historic win, garnering anything between 233-253 seats. The Left-Congress combine scores 38-51 seats. Following the pattern of all other exit polls, BJP musters anything between one to five seats.

West Bengal has 294 Assembly seats. In 2011, in a historic win, TMC had wrested power from the Left, which had ruled the eastern state for over three decades.
