In Nandigram, CM Mamata Banerjee cries fowl during voting
Nandigram : West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee complained to the Governor about ruckus and intense sloganeering during her visit to a polling booth in Nandigram on Thursday (April 1).
It has been alleged that the booth was echoing with chants of "Jai Shree Ram" during the voting.
Angered with the chaos, Mamata Banerjee called up Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar and registered a complaint of total breakdown of law and order at the polling booth.
"None of the people are speaking in the Bengali language. All of them are outsiders. They are goons sent from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh and they are being protected by Central forces," Banerjee said.
"I have lodged 63 poll-related complaints since morning, but no action has been taken by the Election Commission," she added.
Soon after Mamata Banerjee's complaint, the Governor responded on the social media.
"Issues flagged Mamata Banerjee a while ago on phone have been imparted to the concerned. There is full assurance of the concerned to adherence to rule of law. Am confident all will act in right spirit and earnestness so that democracy flourishes," the Governor said in a tweet.
Voting for the second phase of Assembly Elections concluded on Thursday in Bengal.
