West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee slammed the Election Commission and asked the poll panel “how and why does Prime Minister Narendra Modi always campaign on election day”.
“Why does Narendra Modi comes to Bengal on every polling day? Why will he campaign on election day? If we can’t campaign in election areas then why he addresses the people with all facilities including Doordarshan on polling day? Isn’t it a violation of model code of conduct?” asks Banerjee.
She was speaking to reporters in Nandigram.
“Whatever the Election Commission may try, BJP will not win. In Nandigram, 90 per cent of the votes will go to TMC,’ she also said.
She further told reporters that her party has already lodged 63 complaints with Election Commission.
“I am not worried about Nandigram, but I am worried about democracy,” CM said.
After three months of a relentless, high-pitch campaign by both Mamata Banerjee and the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) candidate Suvendu Adhikari, who switched to the party months before the election, a polarised Nandigram casted its vote today along with 29 other constituencies in the 2nd phase of West Bengal election 2021.
