Kolkata: The month-long speculation whether the Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) elections scheduled for December 19 would be held under the supervision of central forces has been laid to rest.

The State Election Commission (SEC) informed the Raj Bhawan on Tuesday that it is satisfied with the Kolkata Police’s deployment mechanism and there is no need to depute central forces for the KMC polls at this moment, reported news agency IANS.

According to the agency’s sources in the commission, the SEC is satisfied with the number of forces and the deployment mechanism following a detailed discussion with Kolkata Police and the officials of the state Home Department.

“There is no need for central forces at this moment, and this has been communicated to Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar on Tuesday,” a senior SEC official told the agency on the condition of anonymity.

Earlier, the commission had a detailed discussion with Joint Commissioner (Headquarters), Kolkata Police, Subhankar Sinha. A draft proposal was also submitted to State Election Commissioner Sourav Das regarding the deployment pattern for the civic elections.

West Bengal BJP delegation led by Leader of Opposition Suvendu Adhikary and Loknath Chatterjee met Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar on Tuesday to express disappointment at SEC’s pro-government stance and sought intervention.
