"Despite so much violence, we have won more than 5,000 seats in gram panchayat". The BJP won 740 seats and is leading in 12.

In the 30-seat Dabgram-II GP, the ruling party won 21 seats, and the BJP bagged seven, while the CPI-M barely managed to get one seat.

For independent candidates, the most remarkable results came from Singur and Bhangar. The Congress and the CPI (M) bagged 147 and 144 seats, respectively, the sources said. Dabgram-Fulbari comprises 14 wards under the Siliguri Municipal Corporation.

The Communist Party of India (Marxist) slipped to the third position from the second place it had occupied in the last panchayat polls in 2013.

Trinamul Congress later wrested control of all the Global Positioning System.

There is a constitutional crisis in Karnataka and the President should step in and show the way, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said here on Thursday.

"We are yet to examine the total results, but overall, the results are satisfactory". But we will fight till the end and it is evident from today's election result that we are the only political party which is fighting against the ruling party. "The saffron party was able to capitalise on some Trinamul Congress votes since the votes were split after rebel party candidates contested too". The BJP managed to get seats in all those Global Positioning System, while one needs to use a microscope to find the CPI-M there. A Congress delegation led by state party president Adhir Chowdhury met Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi at the Raj Bhawan with their demand.

It may be mentioned here that massive development work is being carried out in the Dabgram-Fulbari area for the past few years, and things like road connectivity, drainage and electrification have seen a sea change, while new educational institutes and other establishments are fast coming up in the area.


"I am always for regional parties". In the three other Global Positioning System, we are much ahead of the Oppositions. "We appeal to people to prepare for a bigger movement to save democracy", he said. The counting of votes was halted for nearly three hours in Nadia's Majhdia after allegations of tampering with the ballot papers were received.

Meanwhile in Birbhum, BJP and TMC activists clashed with each other outside a counting station.

In Nadia, another border district like Murshidabad and Malda, the TMC won 1,612 gram panchayat seats, the BJP 637, the CPI (M) 177 and the Congress 60 seats.

While the BJP argued that they were the single largest party to be invited first by the Governor, the JD (S) and Congress said that 112 is the majority to form government and Congress-JDS combine is at 117. The BJP managed to move ahead or win a section of Panchayat seats, especially in Murshidabad and Jhargram districts, while the Left and Congress were pushed to margins.

State Election Commission (SEC) sources said of the 622 Zilla Parishad seats in which elections were held, the TMC won 522 seats and is leading in 50 seats.

The TMC outraced others in panchayat samiti seats too by winning 4,358 of them so far and leading in another 142.
