Kolkata, May 3
TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee will meet West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar at 7 pm on Monday and stake claim to form the government, after her party’s stupendous win in the Assembly election, Raj Bhavan sources said.
The ruling TMC has won 212 of the 292 seats where polling was held in eight phases in March and April, and is leading in one where counting is still in progress. The BJP emerged as the main opposition party with 77 seats.
It is for the second time in succession that Banerjee powered her party to two-thirds majority in the state Assembly.
“Tomorrow at 7 PM Hon’ble CM will be calling on me at Raj Bhavan,” Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar had tweeted on Sunday night. PTI
