The Left Front is a distant second with the party leading in four wards while the BJP, which emerged as the main Opposition party in West Bengal after Assembly polls, is at the third position with its candidates leading in three wards.
TMC heavyweight candidates named Debasish Kumar (ward 85), Tarak Singh (ward 118), Mala Roy (ward 88), and others have been declared as winners. As of now, the TMC has received a massive 74.2 percent vote share. The CPM, surprisingly, has got a better vote share (9.1 percent) than the BJP (8 percent).

At present, celebrations are taking place in Kolkata in which Mamata Supporters are Chanting and Dancing Khela Hobe.
The Elections saw a violent phase in Kolkata after which, The BJP, CPM, and Congress on 20th December staged separate protests in the city demanding fresh elections to the civic body. The BJP and CPM, on the other hand, have moved Calcutta High Court with a similar demand. The plea will be heard on 23rd December.
