While Trinamool Congress registered a landslide victory in West Bengal with Mamata Banerjee returning as Chief Minister for the third time, BJP made their way back into Assam. Puducherry too elected a new government led by the BJP.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan led Left Democratic Front (LDF) won a historic second term in Kerala on Sunday, in a state that had not returned an incumbent government to power in over four decades.
