EC bans Mamata Banerjee for 24 hours

In an order passed by the Election Commission, West Bengal’s incumbent CM Mamata Banerjee has been banned from campaigning for 24 hours after her statement was found to be a violation of the Model Code of Conduct. 

“West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee has in violation of provisions of Model Code of Conduct… made insinuating and provocative remarks laden with a serious potential of a breakdown of law and order and thereby adversely affecting the election process,” the EC said in a statement.

To register her protest against the order, Mamata Banerjee has decided to sit on a dharna from 12 noon today.

TMC MP Derek O’Brien also reacted to the order and labelled April 12 as Black Day of democracy.
