CM Banerjee spoke about the time Bangladeshi actor Ghazi Abdul Noor attended a Trinamool Congress rally in 2019 and was served a ‘Leave India’ notice for allegedly campaigning for the party in violation of the poll code.
West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of violating the Election Commission of India’s model code of conduct by addressing people in Bangladesh, where he is on a two-day visit, saying people in her state and Assam are still voting for the assembly elections.
“Elections are underway here and he [PM] goes to Bangladesh and lectures on Bengal. It is a total violation of code of conduct of the election,” Banerjee said in Kharagpur, according to news agency ANI.
Phase one of polling in West Bengal and Assam is being held on Saturday. In this phase, in West Bengal, more than 73 lakh voters will decide the fate of 191 candidates across 30 assembly segments — nine in Purulia, four in Bankura, four in Jhargram, six in Paschim Medinipur, and seven in Purba Medinipur.
