BJP's to close contest in....

The poll of pinion polls further suggested that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's party may dominate the Hindi Heartland and also secure a clear victory in eight states and Union Territories. The BJP is likely to face a close contest in two states — West Bengal and Maharashtra, the poll showed.

In Bengal, many opinion polls gave the BJP an edge over the ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC). Some others predicted a win for the TMC, but by a close margin.

As per poll of opinion polls, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's TMC may emerge as a winner in the state, with 22 out of 42 seats. The BJP is predicted to win 19 seats this time — just one more than it won in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

Voting for the Lok Sabha elections is set to begin on April 19. The elections will happen in seven phases and the results will be announced on June 4.
