BJP-RSS activists donning central forces’ uniforms being pushed in the state: West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee

The deployment of central forces was increased in Bengal in light of various incidents of violence reported during the polling.

West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee has alleged that the central government has sent BJP-RSS activists donning the uniform of CRPF in the state to conduct the polling. She has also asserted that the BJP government at the centre is attempting to influence the voters in West Bengal by using the central forces.

“Under the garb of deploying central forces in the state, the BJP government is vigorously pushing its cadres in the state. I do not disrespect the central forces but they are being asked to influence the voters,” West Bengal CM said. Mamata Banerjee raised her apprehensions while addressing a rally in Basanti area of South 24 Parganas district, claiming that she doubts RSS activists are being pushed in the state under the pretext of deployment of central forces.

Banerjee said that the central forces in-charge of the security of the BJP candidate Bharati Gosh in Ghatal constituency fired and injured one of the TMC workers. Banerjee said, “There was firing inside a booth by the central forces today. I have heard that one of my brothers, belonging to the minority community, was injured.”

Accusing the central forces of attempting to influence the voters standing in queues, TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee said central forces personnel are asking them to exercise their vote in support of the saffron party. “How can they ask voters what they should do? Is this the job of the central forces to meddle in a democratic process in the country? A few retired officers are being used by the Modi government to administer polling here and they are doing whatever they feel like,” Banerjee said.

Mamata Banerjee further added, “You are here to do a job. You should be ashamed of doing this (asking people to vote for Modi). Today, Modi is at the helm, tomorrow it will be someone else. What will you do then?”

8 constituencies of West Bengal went to the polls on Sunday, in the sixth phase of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. In the last phase of the elections, to be held on May 19, 2019, remaining 9 constituencies of West Bengal will be up for the electoral battle.
