Bengal: TMC, BJP trade guns on Panchayat poll counting day

11 Jul 2023, 01:40 pm

West Bengal's ruling Trinamool Congress and the opposition BJP on Tuesday traded fire as initial trends in the counting for the three-tier Panchayat election in the state showed the TMC was far ahead of its rivals.

The polls, held on July 8, were marred by widespread violence. So far 38 people belonging to different political parties have died in violence since the announcement of the elections last month.

On Tuesday, West Bengal's Leader of the Opposition Suvendu Adhikari accused the ruling Trinamool Congress activists of making one last "desperate attempt" to "steal" the elections by "obstructing" the agents and candidates of BJP and other opposition political parties from entering the counting halls.

Taking to twitter, Adhikari stated, "Diamond Harbour Model" is in full swing on the Counting Day also. TMC goons are making the last desperate attempt to steal the Elections by obstructing the Counting Agents & Candidates of @BJP4Bengal and other opposition political parties from entering the Counting Hall."
Diamond Harbour is the Lok Sabha constituency of Trinamool Congress national general secretary and party chief Mamata Banerjee's nephew Abhishek Banerjee.

"They (opposition counting agents and candidates) are being restricted from going towards the venue from 1-2 kms afar. Bombs are being hurled to intimidate the Counting Agents. They are being mercilessly beaten up, even kidnapped," the BJP MLA from Nandigram said.
