Mamata Banerjee questions EC decision to conduct Bengal polls in 8 phases

West Bengal CM and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee has questioned the Election Commission’s decision to conduct the West Bengal Assembly Election in eight phases.

According to CM, the EC decision was taken to suit the convenience of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Banerjee asked the EC that if the Assam polls can be conducted in three phases and Tamil Nadu in one then why Bengal polls were being bifurcated into eight phases.

“Has this been done with the advice of Modi and Amit Shah? Has this been done to facilitate their campaigning? So that they can finish Assam and Tamil Nadu before coming to Bengal? This won’t help BJP. We will demolish them,” the vocal Bengal leader said.

She also questioned EC decision to hold elections in the same districts in different phases.

“They have divided districts in part 1 part 2. Since we are powerful in South 24 Pargana it is being done in three phases. They are teaching us BA part 1, part 2…,” she said at a press conference in Kolkata.
