"Nobody was allowed to cast their vote during the Panchayat polls. We were under instruction then to intimidate voters. We were assured the police won't act."

Denying his allegations, the Trinamool countered that it was Singh who was trying to terrorise Trinamool councillors.

"Majority of the councillors who owed allegiance to Arjun have said they are with Mamata Banerjee. They say Arjun is trying to terrorise them," said state Food and and North 24 Parganas district Trinamool
