The counting of votes for the three-tier panchayat polls in West Bengal is currently underway under tight security measures. The final results are expected to be announced on Wednesday, following a six-phase counting process. Unfortunately, the election has been overshadowed by incidents of violence, resulting in the tragic loss of lives. Since the announcement of the panchayat polls early last month, political clashes throughout the state have claimed the lives of over 33 individuals, with 18 casualties occurring on the polling day itself.

Addressing the issue of violence, West Bengal Governor, Dr CV Ananda Bose, expressed his concern, emphasizing that the state must combat two formidable adversaries: violence and corruption. He called upon political parties to unite in their efforts to overcome these challenges.

Senior TMC leader Abhishek Banerjee expressed his gratitude to the rural population of West Bengal for their support and for voting in favor of his party during the elections. In a veiled reference aimed at Suvendu Adhikari, the leader of the opposition BJP, Banerjee remarked that the campaign of “No Vote to Mamata” has now transformed into “Now Vote for Mamata.” This statement implies a shift in public sentiment towards supporting Mamata Banerjee, the Chief Minister of West Bengal and the leader of the TMC party.

The three-tier panchayat elections took place on July 8 across over 61,000 polling booths in West Bengal, witnessing a significant voter turnout of 80.71 percent. Unfortunately, multiple incidents of violence marred the electoral process, with instances of ballot box looting, arson, and disposal in ponds. The severity of the violence prompted the need for repolling in approximately 696 booths. The elections involved over 5.6 crore eligible voters residing in rural Bengal, with a staggering 206,000 candidates competing for 73,887 seats.

As the counting of votes commenced, the final results are expected to be announced on Wednesday.
