Mamata Banerjee alleged BJP activists were forcefully occupying polling booths and assaulting Trinamool representatives
Mamata Banerjee, the Chief Minister of West Bengal, alleged today that BJP activists were forcefully occupying polling booths and assaulting Trinamool representatives, including party candidates, and that she would not be intimidated by such “intimidating tactics.”
Mamata Banerjee reported that her party’s candidate in Arambagh, Sujata Mondal, was chased and hit on the head by BJP workers near a polling booth while speaking at a public rally in Kalchini in Bengal’s Alipurduar district.
“When our Scheduled Caste nominee Sujata went to a booth, they inflicted serious injury on her. In Khanakul, they also attacked another nominee. Security forces in Canning East stopped our candidate Shaukat Mollah from entering a booth. Throughout the state, there had been multiple instances of such attacks on our candidates and party workers “Mamata Banerjee expressed herself.
The Chief Minister also said that she has received at least 100 attack and abuse complaints since the morning and that she has notified the Election Commission but to no avail.
Mamata Banerjee alleged that the BJP leadership in Delhi hatched a deep-rooted conspiracy after “low turnout” in rallies, and that “security forces have been asked not to resist booth capturing.”
“Since the elections started, four of our activists have been assassinated, but no action has been taken. However, such actions cannot be used to terrorize or bully us (BJP) “Ms. Banerjee continued.
