As political ardour is gaining pace ahead of the Lok Sabha polls across India, News Nation has conducted a poll survey to gauge the voting intention in West Bengal. Our team travelled across all the 42 Lok Sabha constituencies all over the state and asked people several questions to find out who will have the better chance to steal the show in 2019. The factors which are likely to impact the upcoming Lok Sabha polls 2019, include the list of achievements and developmental works of the Centre and state government, the top choice for the PM's post, unemployment, inflation, Naxalism, corruption, illegal migrants, communalism and Gorkhaland among others.
