Kolkata, Apr 6 IBNS | 7 months ago

The Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) on Sunday met the Chief Election Commissioner V S Sampath in Kolkata and submitted a memorandum alleging that the Police and the Administration in West Bengal has failed to discharge their duties in owing to 'political pressure'.

The party alleged that the workers of the ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC) are disrupting poll campaigns and meetings of the Opposition parties in the run-up to the Lok Sabha Election.

"On 1st April, 2014 we submitted to you in detail the situation in the State. In the prevailing situation, a large number of political workers of the ruling party continue to disrupt Election Campaigns and meetings of the Opposition parties in the run-up to the Loksabha Election. Left workers and supporters have been driven out of their houses and places of residences. As we have previously written to you, several Police Stations in many districts refuse to register complaints or, even when complaints are accepted, do not arrest or prevent wrongdoers," read the memorandum.

"The Police and the Administration more often than not, fail to discharge their prescribed duties due to political pressure. Flagrant violations of MCC [Model Code of Conduct] by AITC go unchallenged by a section of Police and Civil authorities who do not pay any heed to genuine complaints and rather resort to vindictive measures against the complainants," it said.

The party demanded deployment of central forces in all the polling stations for fair polling.
