Peaceful polling in West Bengal, says Left FrontMay 7th, 2009 - 10:37 pm ICT by IANS
Kolkata, May 7 (IANS) West Bengal’s ruling Left Front Thursday said the second-phase polling was by and large peaceful, except a few sporadic incidents of violence in the state.
“Overall, today’s (Thursday) election was more or less conducted in a peaceful manner, except a few incidents of violence triggered by the opposition Trinamool Congress in different parliamentary constituencies,” state Left Front chairman Biman Bose told the media.
Accusing the Trinamool Congress of booth capturing in East Midnapore’s Nandigram, he said, “Altogether 58 booths were captured by the opposition in Nandigram region on the polling day.”
Bose said: “The opposition party activists also stopped our polling agents from entering four polling stations in Hooghly district.
“Besides these incidents, Trinamool Congress also carried out violence and heavy rigging in several booths of Murshidabad district’s Jangipur and Nandigram area,” he said.
