Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has alleged that the polls were rigged in a polling booth in the Nandigram assembly constituency during the second phase of polling in West Bengal. TMC’s legislative candidate is Mamata Banerjee herself. Now the Election Commission is investigating and responding to the allegations. The allegations are completely baseless, the Election Commission said. The Election Commission may take action against Mamata for alleged misconduct.
The Election Commission (CEC) has said in a statement that it has “misled” the Chief Minister and the legislature itself by casting their ballots. This is in violation of the Electoral Code of Conduct. The Election Commission is reviewing whether action can be taken in the case of April 1 (polling day) under sections 131 and 123 (2) of the Public Representatives Act.
Refuting Mamata’s allegations, the Election Commission said, “There is no evidence that the BSF youths deployed at the polling stations were involved in any illegal activities. In addition, there is no truth to the allegations that they allowed voters not to enter the booth. ”
Mamata Banerjee had made serious allegations against a booth in Nandigram during the second round of voting. When Mamata arrived at the booth, there was a quarrel between BJP and TMC workers. At this point, Mamata was trapped inside the booth for two hours. Mamata Banerjee called the governor from inside the polling station and complained. Mamata also told the governor that she would go to court if necessary.
Earlier, a BJP delegation met the Election Commission on Friday and demanded action against Mamata Banerjee. The BJP has alleged that Mamata violated the code of conduct during her polls in her constituency Nandigram. The BJP alleges that Mamata Banerjee threw stones at her polling station after entering the booth.
