Kolkata. Voting took place on Sunday for 144 wards of Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC). There were also reports of violence at many places during the voting. After the violence during the Kolkata Municipal Corporation elections, BJP leader Shubhendu Adhikari met Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar. After meeting the governor, Shubhendu Adhikari said, “We demand that this KMC election be declared null and void. We are ready to submit the evidence and video clip in the court hearing on 23rd December.
He said- Kolkata Police is a cadre of TMC. Mamta has asked the police to remain unarmed and help the TMC miscreants. Elections should be declared void. Before meeting the Governor of West Bengal, BJP leader of West Bengal Suvendhu said, “This is the murder of democracy…Mamata Banerjee is like North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. This election should be cancelled… We have documents of fake voting etc.”
Earlier, there was chaos outside a residence in the Salt Lake area where Shubhendu Adhikari was holding a meeting with party MLAs. The Bidhannagar City Police cordoned off the entire area and prevented the MLAs from leaving for the Raj Bhavan, where they were scheduled to meet the governor. “The police of the Trinamool Congress government did not let me go. We were kept under illegal detention. I condemn it. Later they gave us permission.
BJP will protest across the state
BJP’s West Bengal unit spokesperson Shamik Bhattacharya said, “We will hold dharnas peacefully across the state against the violence in the KMC elections. The manner in which votes have been looted with the help of state administration is shameful for our democracy. That’s why we asked for deployment of central forces to ensure free and fair elections.
