New Delhi: A Trinamool Congress leaders’ delegation met the Election Commission on Friday and said that the “partisan and biased approach” of the poll panel has made “free, fair and transparent elections” in West Bengal a distant reality.
A six-member team met the Commission here to voice incidents of violence, including Thursday’s clashes in Nandigram.
The Trinamool Congress panel drafted in parliamentarian Saugata Roy, Mahua Moitra and newly inducted former Union Finance Minister Yashwant Sinha.
“It is becoming increasingly clear that free, fair and transparent elections in the state of West Bengal is becoming a distant reality. This is evident from the partisan and biased approach taken by the Election Commission in respect of the ongoing elections in the state,” Trinamool Congress was quoted as saying in its memorandum to the poll panel by news agency IANS.
“If true, this decision is unprecedented and casts severe aspersions on the reputation of the police administration of the police administration in West Bengal,” the memorandum added.
