As the BJP headed for a landslide victory and a second term riding on a stunning performance in states like Bengal, Mamata Banerjee said: "Congratulations to the winners. But all losers are not losers."
Mamata Banerjee fought hard to preserve her territory as the BJP campaigned aggressively in 42-seat Bengal. Her Trinamool Congress is at 23, but the BJP followed closely with 17 seats.
"We have to do a complete review and then we will share our views with you all. Let the counting process be completed fully and the VVPATs matched," the Bengal Chief Minister tweeted.
