Watch | TMC Wins West Bengal, LDF Bucks Trend in Kerala

While BJP retained Assam, an alliance led by it and DMK wrested power in Puducherry and Tamil Nadu respectively.

The results of five state assemblies were declared on May 2. While Mamata Banerjee’s TMC trounced the BJP to form the government in West Bengal, BJP retained Assam and secured victory in Puducherry.

Bucking Kerala’s historic trend of switching between LDF and UDF, the LDF came back to power comfortably. In Tamil Nadu, DMK registered a convincing win.
