Arambagh/Khanakul(WB): Trinamul Congress president  Mamata Banerjee Tuesday alleged that the Central forces were working for the BJP in West Bengal by illegally sitting inside the booths and asking voters to cast vote in favour of the saffron party.

She claimed that the voting process was dragged for three months to help the BJP.

 

Ms Banerjee said she got information that central forces were asking voters in Maldaha Dakshin and Balurghat constituencies, where polling took place Tuesday, to cast their votes for the saffron party.

Ms Banerjee said the Election Commission has been apprised of the matter. “I have got information that the central forces are sitting inside booths in Englishbazar in Maldaha Dakshin and asking voters to vote for the BJP. They do not have the right to do such thing. We have informed the Election Commission about this,” she said.

Ms Banerjee further alleged that the central forces were sitting inside booths no 166 and 167 in Maldah South controlling the polling there and asking voters to vote for the BJP.

 

“Why are they (central forces) doing it? They cannot enter a polling booth. It is not their duty... Without the permission of the presiding officer,” she added alleging that central forces deployed in a booth  in Itahar were asking voters standing in the queque to vote for the BJP.
