2021 Assembly election updates: The TMC supremo is expected to address back-to-back rallies in Dhupguri, Kharija Berubari, Jaleshwari, Nadia and Darjeeling in Jalpaiguri.
Addressing a public meeting in Katwa, West Bengal, the BJP leader attacked the state government’s inaction in the face of alleged attacks by Trinamool congressional “morons” on Dalits.
The congressman will address his first electoral rally in Bengal ahead of the fifth phase of the National Assembly poll on April 17. There are plans to hold two public meetings – one in Goalpokhar at 2:10 p.m. and the other in Bagdogra at 4:00 p.m.
The TMC supremacy said it would also bring justice to the family of Ananda Burman, an 18-year-old first voter who was gunned down outside a polling station in the same district.
A delegation of congressional deputies from Trinamool will meet with officials of the Election Commission in Delhi on Wednesday afternoon, the party said.
The delegation will include parliamentarians Derek O’Brien, Kalyan Banerjee, Pratima Mondal and Santanu Sen. They are due to arrive at the Election Commission of India office at 3:30 p.m.
The meeting will take place days after the polling body banned TMC chief and West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee from campaigning for 24 hours. On Tuesday, she had participated in a three-and-a-half-hour protest against the voting committee’s decision.
On Monday, shortly after the Election Commission banned Mamata Banerjee from campaigning for 24 hours, her party alleged that the voting committee was behaving like a “wing of the BJP” and its decision smacked of authoritarianism.
