West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Friday accused Home Minister Amit Shah of pressuring police to “engage in all forms of unethical acts” and alleged he was trying to incite violence in the state, PTI reported.
Meanwhile, a day after the Election Commission served her a notice for allegedly violating the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) with her appeal last week to minority voters not to divide their votes between different political parties, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday said she would continue to raise her voice against any attempt to divide voters on communal lines.
Ahead of phase 4 of the West Bengal Assembly elections, Union Home Minister Amit Shah held public programs in Kolkata, Bhabanipur, Jagatdal and Madhyamgram today. Party president J P Nadda also participated in roadshows at Chakdaha in Nadia district and Bardhaman in Purba Bardhaman district.
Also in Bengal, TMC candidate Girindra Nath Barman was allegedly attacked by BJP workers while he was returning from an election campaign yesterday. “BJP goons vandalised his car & attacked him. He has sustained head injuries. We demand action,” a TMC worker told ANI.
