West Bengal polls: ‘Mood is for Poriborton,’ finds Survey; a break-up of region-wise data
In its report, the Peoples Pulse report claims that BJP maintains a clean edge on 160 seats while TMC looks invincible on 70 seats while 12 constituencies are hard-core Left bastions.
New Delhi: Amid the charged-up political atmosphere and high-octane campaigning, a website named Peoples Pulse has done a wide-ranging survey of the electorate, their political inclination and how they will vote.
“There is a mood for Poriborton,” the report curated by Dr Sajjan Kumar clearly states indicating that Mamata Banerjee won’t be able to hit hat-trick this time and will be shown the door from corridors of power.
Collating the data of entire 294 seats and analysing the ground reality, the Peoples Pulse survey predicts an easy victory for Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the ensuing Assembly elections.
Bengal to ‘vote for change’
In its report, the survey/report claims that BJP maintains a clean edge on 160 seats while TMC looks invincible on 70 seats while 12 constituencies are hard-core Left bastions.
