WB BJP to complain against TMC to chief election commissioner

Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

The West Bengal BJP will be meeting Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora on Monday to complain against the Trinamool Congress in the state and the alleged malpractices pursued by the ruling party during elections, a senior leader said here.

BJP state general secretary Sayantan Basu and senior leader Mukul Roy will meet the CEC in New Delhi.

"We will meet Chief Election Commissioner tomorrow in New Delhi. We want to apprise the CEC of the methods used by the TMC to rig polls," Basu said.

He said the party would present to the CEC the details of the panchayat polls in the state, which was marked by violence and "subversion of democratic rights".

"We will also submit to him a list of government officers who are working as cadres of the TMC. We would urge the Election Commission to take action against them when the Model Code of conduct would be in force during the Lok Sabha polls," he said.

The BJP Bengal unit, which is aiming to win at least 22 of the 42 Lok Sabha seats in the state, has time and again accused the TMC government of subverting democratic rights of the people in the state. The allegation has been denied by the TMC.
