TMC delegation to meet ECI today, likely to request for bypolls in West Bengal

IBNS | @indiablooms | 26 Aug 2021, 12:08 pm

New Delhi/IBNS: A delegation of the Trinamool Congress (TMC) will meet the Election Commission of India (ECI) here Thursday with a likely request for the conduction of the pending bypolls in West Bengal.

TMC MPs Saugata Roy, Sukhendu Sekhar Roy, Jawhar Sircar, Sajda Ahmed and Mahua Moitra will meet the ECI at 3:15 pm.

Seven assembly constituencies including two seats where polls were not held in March-April elections, are due for voting.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who had lost to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s Suvendu Adhikari in Nandigram, is yet to be elected from a seat.

Banerjee is likely to contest from Bhabanipore, which is vacated by West Bengal Minister Sovandeb Chattopadhyay, who may contest from a different seat.

The Chief Minister earlier this week said the byelections should be held now as the COVID-19 situation is now under control in West Bengal.
