The Left Front is predicted to win 106 seats while the Congress may win 21. The BJP may win four seats while others three.
It means if the Left and Congress's seats are put together, they will give the TMC a run for their money.
In terms of vote-share, the TMC may get 40 per cent while the Left may get 32 per cent. The Congress, surprisingly, can finish behind the BJP (11 per cent) with eight per cent. Others are expected to get two percent vote-share.
In the 2011 Assembly elections, the TMC alone had got 184 seats while its then ally Congress got 42. The Left had won 62 seats of which the CPI(M) had 40. The results marked the end of 34 years of Left rule in West Bengal and Mamata Banerjee became the first woman chief minister of the state.
