    The CPI(M) and the Congress, instead of trying to strengthen themselves, are helping the BJP in West Bengal, Banerjee said.

    Tapan Deb Sinha of the TMC won the Kaliaganj seat by defeating his nearest rival Kamal Chandra Sarkar of the BJP by 2,304 votes, according to official figures by the state election commission.

    While, Pradip Sarkar of TMC won Kharagpur sadar assembly by-election by 20,811 votes.

    It's a major blow to the Congress, as the Kaliaganj seat has been its stronghold, and it failed to retain the seat.

    The TMC is also leading in Karimpur by 28,000 votes.
