West Bengal Lok Sabha Election History

The details of the previous elections are as follows:
  • The first general election was held in 1951, in which the INC won 21 seats out of the total 31 seats. Five seats were won by the CPI, the RSP won two, while the Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha (HMS) and the All India Bharatiya Jan Sangh (BJS) won one each.
  • In 1957, the INC won 23 of the 36 Lok Sabha seats, while the CPI won 6. Three were won by independent candidates and two were won each by the Forward Block (FBM) and the Praja Socialist Party (PSP) each.
  • The general election of 1962 was dominated by the Congress, which won 22 of the 36 seats. Also, 9 seats were won by the CPI, 2 by independent candidates and 1 each by the FBM, the Lok Sewak Sangh (LSS) and the Revolutionary Socialist Party (RSP).
  • The year 1967 saw 40 seats of West Bengal being contested. This time the Congress party had emerged weaker, winning 14 seats. By contrast, seven seats were won by independent contestants, five each by the Bangla Congress (BAC), the CPI and the CPM, and one each by the Samyukta Socialist Party (SSP) and the Praja Socialist Party (PSP).
  • In the 1971 election, the CPM won 20 seats out of the 40, while the INC won only 13, followed by the CPI three, and one each by BAC, PSP, RSP and an independent candidate.
  • In the 1977 election, West Bengal had a total of 42 seats. Of these, 17 went to the CPM. The Bharatiya Lok Dal (BLD) entered the picture by winning 15 seats, followed by the All India Forward Bloc (FBL), INC and RSP winning three each and the remaining one by an independent candidate.
  • In 1980, the CPM again had a stupendous victory by winning 28 seats while four were won each by the INC and the RSP, and three each by the CPI and the FBL.
  • In the 1984 election, the Congress party bounced back, winning 16 of the 42 seats. This time the CPM won 18 seats, while the CPI and RSP won 3 seats each and only two were won by the FBL.
  • The CPM had another strong show in 1989, winning 27 seats. The INC and the RSP each won four, while the CPI and the FBL bagged three each. Also, the Gorkha National Liberation Front (GNLF) won one seat.
  • The CPM won 27 seats in the 1991 Lok Sabha again, while the INC won 5, the RSP won 4. The FBL and the CPI won 3 seats each.
  • The 1996 election also belonged to the CPM, which won 23 seats, followed by the INC winning 9. The RSP won 4, and 3 each were won by the CPI and the FBL.
  • In the 1998 Lok Sabha election, the CPM bagged a total of 24 seats, the West Bengal Trinamool Congress (WBTC) won 7, the RSP won 4, the CPI bagged 3, the FBL won 2, and the BJP and the INC won one each.
  • The 1999 General election marked the ninth victory for the CPM, who won 21 seats. The All India Trinamool Congress (AITC) won 8, while 3 each were won by the INC, the RSP and the CPI while the BJP and the FBL won only two each.
  • The 14th general election of 2004 saw the CPM win 26 out of the 42 seats, while the INC won 6, the CPI, AIFB and RSP won 3 each, and the AITC won one seat.
  • In a very surprising move, the CPM was routed in the 2009 election. The AITC won 19 seats, while the CPM managed only 9. The INC won 6, and two each were won by the RSP, the AIFB, the BJP and the CPI. One seat was bagged by an independent candidate.
