Polls peaceful, Trinamool tried to create trouble: Left FrontMay 13th, 2009 - 9:46 pm ICT by IANS
Kolkata, May 13 (IANS) West Bengal’s ruling Left Front (LF) Wednesday described the final phase of Lok Sabha polls in the state as “peaceful” and accused the opposition Trinamool Congress of indulging in violence and trying to create tension by spreading rumours.
“The elections went peacefully apart from three-four sporadic incidents,” LF chairman Biman Bose said here.
“The opposition party (Trinamool) tried to create tension; they even tried to spread it through the media,” Bose alleged.
Polling was conducted in 11 Lok Sabha constituencies covering 77 assembly segments.
Bose said one Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) worker was killed by armed Trinamool workers when he was returning after casting his vote at Naraynapur in Jainagar Lok Sabha constituency.
The car of Sudin Chattopadhyay, Forward Bloc (FB) candidate from Barasat, was damaged by Trinamool activists at Ashokenagar in North 24 Parganas district, Bose alleged.
The FB is a member of the CPI-M-led LF.
In the satellite township of Salt Lake near here, police arrested five Trinamool supporters who had allegedly come from outside to disrupt polls.
In Dum Dum, a CPI-M worker suffered a head injury at Ruia when some Trinamool workers pelted stones at him, Bose alleged.
He flayed the opposition Trinamool for spreading canards in North 24 Parganas Bongaon that a temple of the dalit community Motua had been attacked.
“They spread this rumour to stop the deeply religious Matua people from voting,” he said.
In Bhangor of South 24 Parganas, Trinamool workers hurled bombs injuring three CPI-M workers.
