The presence of chief ministers Akhilesh Yadav, Arvind Kejriwal, Nitish Kumar and RJD chief Lalu Prasad at the swearing-in ceremony of Mamata Banerjee on Friday again led to speculations of a “federal front” gaining ground.
TMC MP and leader of the minority cell Idris Ali said that people have foiled the joint attempt of Congress and the Left Front that tried its bit to spread rumours about the party having an “understanding with the BJP”.
Speaking to The Indian Express, several poll officials recounted the circumstances under which they have been working since the polling began last month, with many claiming that the work often puts their “lives at risk”.
Sonia, while claiming that the Mamata government had given false hopes to the people, said in the 2011 polls, Congress had entered into an alliance with the Trinamool in the hope that the Bengal would see true development.
Supriyo and his parents had stepped out of their booth in Jorasanko’s Arya Kanya Vidyalaya in the afternoon when some Trinamool supporters started chanting “go back”, alleging he had come there to influence voters.
