“Are You Filing Nomination From Another Seat?”: PM Modi Takes A Dig At Mamata Banerjee

However, TMC sources categorically denied the claims. They said that Mamata Banerjee is only contesting from Nandigram. 


Nandigram| Voting was held for the second phase of the election on Thursday in 69 seats of West Bengal and Assam. More than 80% of the people cast their votes amidst some incidents of violence in Bengal and booth capturing allegations. According to the Election Commission, till 6 pm, Bengal has recorded 80.43% and Assam has 74.64% polling. In the first phase of voting in Bengal, 79.79% and 72.14% of the voting was recorded in Assam.

Meanwhile, Mamata Banerjee made big allegations against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah. She said “How can PM Modi campaign in West Bengal on election day? Mamata alleged that Amit Shah is directly ordering the security personnel to be sent by the Centre. This is a violation of the electoral code of conduct.”

In response to this, PM Narendra Modi said in a rally in Bengal that Mamata Banerjee has given up. “The people of Bengal have decided to remove Didi’s government. People here are not in the mood to wait any longer,” PM Modi said.
