Lok Sabha Election Results 2024: The Trinamool Congress (TMC) has called a meeting of all newly elected MPs of the party at around 4:00 pm on Saturday (June 8) at Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's residence in Kolkata's Kalighat. The Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) campaign strategy for Lok Sabha Polls in West Bengal failed to bring fruitful results as Trinamool Congress won 29 seats in the state.

West Bengal contributes 42 Lok Sabha seats in the 543-member Parliament. The BJPs' main focus was to dislodge Mamata Banerjee from West Bengal and even targeted the TMC government over Sandeshkhali, but the BJP won in 12 seats, down from its earlier tally of 18 seats in the 2019 polls.

Earlier on Tuesday as the Lok Sabha results were announced, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee demanded resignation from Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said that he has lost his credibility since he had said that he would cross 400 seats but could not. 

PM Modi lost credibility: CM Mamata 

TMC chairperson Banerjee said, "The Prime Minister has lost credibility, he should resign immediately because he had said that this time they would cross 400 seats. I had said that there is a doubt that the BJP would cross even 200 seats. Now they have to hold the feet of Janata Dal (United) chief Nitish Kumar and Chandrababu Naidu-led TDP.

CM Mamata Banerjee added, "Even after committing so many atrocities, spending so much money, so much arrogance of Modi ji and Amit Shah, INDIA has won and Modi has lost. He threatened everyone. In my state all leaders were threatened over the phone. All councillors and MLAs were threatened by the BJP. Many of them were offered money in 2 to 3 seats. Even after so many atrocities they have even lost in Ayodhya. So much arrogance is not good for anyone."

In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the TMC had won 22 of the 42 Lok Sabha seats in the state, and the BJP won 18. Congress won only 2 seats.
