Guwahati: The ruling Trinamool Congress on Wednesday bagged 102 of the 108 municipalities in West Bengal civic polls.

The Trinamool secured Kanthi Municipality, the bastion of Leader of Opposition and Nandigram’s BJP MLA Suvendu Adhikari, while Hamro Party, a new entrant in hill politics, trounced TMC, GJM and BJP to win Darjeeling Municipality.

Meanwhile, the BJP, which has emerged as the main opposition party in West Bengal after winning 77 seats in the assembly polls last year, failed to win even a single civic body.

The Congress, too, was unable to win a single civic body, although the parties have won a few wards in some towns.

West Bengal Chief Minister and TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee on thanked the people of West Bengal for giving a massive mandate to the ruling Trinamool Congress in the civic elections and called upon winning candidates and supporters to work with humility.

Elections were scheduled in 108 municipalities, but took place in 107 civic bodies on February 27 as the TMC won Dinhata Municipality in Coochbehar district uncontested.
