INDIA: West Bengal is presently disrupted by the heavy clash rift between the ruling party and the opposition party amid the upcoming panchayat elections.

Meanwhile, the Calcutta high court ordered the state election commission to take help from the Central Paramilitary forces to bring control into the ongoing violence in several districts of WB. According to reports, five fatalities have occurred on Thursday, the final day for submitting nominations for the three-tier panchayat elections.

In the midst of all the chaos, Trinamool Congress leader Madan Mitra told a media agency that CM Mamata Banerjee has the support of the people of West Bengal. Mitra continued by saying he had no idea how many thousands of crores would be spent on these central forces, while West Bengal received zero investment for state development.

He stated that it is a judicial judgement; everyone must accept it but don’t forget that the votes will be delivered by the people.

“We will give our blood, we are ready to give ‘qurbaani’, but we will fight back,” Mitra continued.

“We will fight the central forces, but we will show that the TMC will win, and if we must offer our lives, we are willing to face the torture of the central forces,” he said.

Now, the seven districts which are on high alert are Birbhum, North 24 Parganas, South 24 Parganas, Hooghly, Murshidabad, East Midnapore and Jalpaiguri.

Reports suggest Crude bombs were thrown at the Block Development Office in Birbhum’s Ahmadpur. However, no casualties were reported. Following the death of Congress worker Phoolchand Sheikh in Murshidabad on June 9, the overall death toll in election-related violence has increased to at least five.

Thus, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee said that it was carried out by those who were denied a ticket by the party due to their lack of credibility. The CM stated that she had requested that the police take serious action.

The WB CM went on to say that the party that won the (assembly) elections is participating in violence in Bhangar. When properties were plundered, she said, communal slogans were yelled.

“Communal slogans were raised when properties were ransacked. There was some retaliation from our side yesterday. I will not hide the truth,” she said.
