A day ahead of the counting for the Lok Sabha elections, an apprehensive Left Front chairman Biman Bose expressed concern and doubts over the counting process. Demanding deployment of central police force at every counting centre, Bose said the Trinamool Congress “can do everything possible to get certain number of seats”.
“We have information that the TMC leaders are holding meetings today. They have decided to get certain number of seats which they have to get according to their leaders’ calculations. They will try to achieve the numbers by hook or by crook. We are afraid that the party will manipulate the counting system. They can do anything and everything to get the numbers,” Bose alleged.
He added: “We saw how the special observers did not perform their duties during the elections. Our polling agents were not allowed inside the booths. We are apprehensive that they might not allow our counting agents inside the counting centres now. Some of the police officials are acting as TMC workers.”
