Our responsibility has gone up and we will keep all our promises: Mamata
KOLKATA: The Trinamool Congress on Tuesday registered a landslide victory in the Kolkata civic polls, winning 134 of the 144 wards, bagging 72 per cent of the votes. The BJP, which had emerged as the main opposition party in the Assembly polls earlier this year, won three seats, while the Left Front and Congress won two each. The Independents, with three seats, ended on an equal footing with the non-TMC parties.

In terms of vote share, the Left did better than the BJP as it finished ahead of the saffron camp.

TMC bettered its performance since the 2021 Assembly elections in which it had got 59.03 per cent votes in Kolkata.

Trinamool Congress chairperson Mamata Banerjee thanked “Ma, Mati, Manus” for their overwhelming support. “Our responsibility has gone up and we will keep all our promises. Kolkata will show the path to the entire nation,” she said before leaving for Assam to offer her prayers at the Kamakhya temple.
