Election Results LIVE: Mamata Banerjee’s TMC is set to form government in West Bengal, Jayalalithaa will retain power in Tamil Nadu, Tarun Gogoi has been voted out of Assam and the Left have stormed back to power in Kerala.

Scripting history, the BJP on Thursday stormed to power in Assam bagging a government in the north east for the first time dethroning Congress which also lost Kerala while Jayalalithaa and Mamata Banerjee retained power in Tamil Nadu and West Bengal with spectacular victories.

The Congress could take solace only in Puducherry where it managed to get a simple majority along with DMK to wrest power from AINRC headed by N Rangaswami, a former Congressman.

The results of the assembly elections saw the end of Congress rule in Assam where it had scored a hat-trick in the last elections under Tarun Gogoi. With Union Minister Sarbananda Sonowal as its Chief Ministerial face, the BJP and its allies AGP and Bodo People’s Front scored a landslide victory.

In Puducherry, Congress-DMK alliance got a consolation win of sorts as it secured a simple majority with 17 seats in the 30-member assembly of the tiny union territory. Congress avenged its defeat in the 2011 elections at the hands of AINRC founder N Rangasamy, who broke away from the national party to form his outfit and rode it to power, as the ruling party fell by the wayside bagging just eight seats.

4:15 pm CPI(M)-led alliance said the people of the state gave a verdict against corruption under Congress-led UDF rule and “communal politics” practised by BJP-led NDA. “Congress-led UDF has suffered a huge blow. Congress could win only a few seats. However, its partners — Muslim League and Kerala Congress — did not meet such a fate. It is a verdict against Congress’ policy,” CPI(M) State Secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan said.
