Victory celebration in West Bengal and Tamil Nadu

Meanwhile, TMC and DMK supporters have already hit the streets to celebrate the victory of the party in complete violation of Coronavirus protocols and social distancing guidelines as initial trends show them victorious.

In a shocking incident, TMC workers have also reportedly gheraod the BJP office in Hastings, Kolkata.

After the predicted decisive victory for TMC, there have been fears that BJP workers and those who supported and voted for the party might face backlash from the TMC and its workers. That the workers are now congregating in front of the BJP office has many worried about the consequences that might be faced by BJP workers post the predicted victory.
