Indian Prime Minister NARENDRA MODI’S party has failed to win a key state in elections held amid high record of Covid-19 deaths and cases.
The BJP targeted West Bengal heavily during campaigning but it was comfortably held by the incumbent, MAMATA BANERJEE, a fierce MODI critic.
Prime Minister MODI has been accused of focusing on polls rather than the pandemic.
Elections also went ahead in Assam, Tamil Nadu and Kerala states as well as the territory of Puducherry.
