TMC happy at exit poll result, alliance confident of success
Kolkata: West Bengal's ruling Trinamool Congress today expressed happiness at being given a clear majority in the state Assembly elections by most of the exit polls.
"We will wait for May 19 and the actual results. The people of Bengal will bless Trinamool abundantly. Mamata Banerejee government's peace and communal harmony will win the hearts and minds of the people of Bengal," TMC spokesperson Derek O'Brien said.
On the other hand, the opposition combine of the Left Front and Congress is hopeful that the formation of an alliance government is only a matter of time.
Most of the exit poll surveys by regional and national channels have given TMC a clear majority in the 294-member Assembly.
CPM MP Ritabrata Banerjee and Congress leader Abdul Mannan said that whatever might be the exit poll prediction, the formation of the alliance government was "imminent."
Mannan claimed people had voted in favour of the alliance.
