Hindus stopped from casting their votes in Medinipur constituency in West Bengal

People from a certain section (Hindus) have been making frantic calls alleging that they were being allowed to cast their votes as their votes could dedicatedly go to a certain party (BJP), reports Times Now

During the 6th phase of polling for the Lok Sabha elections in the State of West Bengal, Hindus were allegedly stopped from casting their votes on the Medinipur constituency of the state. According to a report of Times Now, there were inputs coming from booth no. 50 which comes under Belda Police Station in Medinipur constituency that a section of people from the village intimidated and stopped people from casting their votes.

A number of people had reportedly crowded in the houses near the booth who dispersed after the media person reached the spot and inquired about them. The local police also reached the booth later. Conspicuously, both the police as well as the people said that there was only a minor scuffle between the voters over the queue.

As per the reporter present there, people from a certain section (Hindus) have been making frantic calls alleging that they were being allowed to cast their votes as their votes could dedicatedly go to a certain party (BJP). The people who had gathered on the streets around the booth and intimidating the voters refused to reveal their identities.

Fair polling in the state of West Bengal has become a challenge as reports of violence have been coming out since the voting started. Earlier in the day BJP candidate Bharti Ghosh’s convey was vandalised by TMC goons and she was also heckled. Two of her personal security guards were also injured in the incident.
