May 18: Celebrations have already broken out in Tamil Nadu and West Bengal have prematurely declared an easy victory for the J Jayalalithaa and Mamata Banerjee, both. Meanwhile, things are looking glum for Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi of Assam. Reports have come in, which say that Congress workers have shut their offices in Guwahati, indicating that the party has already accepted the impending defeat that is to come for them. Same is the situation in Kerala, with PC Chacko officially declaring that the Party’s state unit has accepted defeat, bending to the will of the people’s mandate.Also Read - Assam Tightens COVID Curbs, Non-Vaccinated People Banned From Visiting Public Places

Chacko said, “Looks like we will have to concede defeat in Kerala, responsibility will be fixed.” Achuthanandan’s CPI(M) is way ahead of Congress in the trends and by now these are set enough to draw a decisive picture about who is going to win. In Tamil Nadu, the battle for Jayalalithaa had been predicted to be an uphill one, but it looks like she scored an easy victory in the state, ending the jinx of anti-incumbency, which had dominated the political scene of the state, since 1977. Mamata Banerjee had meanwhile, been predicted to win by the exit polls too and now that seems to be coming true. ALSO SEE LIVE COVERAGE: Assembly Election Results LIVE Updates: TMC returns in West Bengal, BJP leads in Assam, Left dominates Kerala Also Read - First Time Since 1996, ULFA (I) Decides Not To Call 'Assam Bandh' on Republic Day, CM Himanta Welcomes Decision
