Mamata Banerjee is under pressure: Dilip Ghosh on TMC alleging rigging of polls

BJP s tate president Dilip Ghosh cast his vote during first phase of polling for West Bengal Assembly elections on March 27.

On TMC alleging rigging of polls, BJP leader Dilip Ghosh said, "TMC knows that it is losing and that's why it is saying all this.

For such complaints, TMC should go to the Election Commission... TMC and Mamata Banerjee are under pressure and that is why they are saying such things." TMC's Derek O'Brien wrote to EC.

He state, "Voter turnout for ACs Kanthi Dakshin (216) and Kanthi Uttar (213) at 9:13am was 18.47% and 18.95% respectively, 4 minutes later at 9:17am voter turnout reduced to 10.60% and 9:40%.

Such discrepancy raises question on genuineness of data issued by EC."

Watch: Purported video of Sitalkuchi firing goes viral, TMC calls it 'genocide'

A purported video from Sitalkuchi in Bengal's Cooch Behar is doing rounds on social media. Four villagers had died in the area in an altercation with CRPF jawans during the fourth phase of polling. Ruling TMC said video vindicates its position that there was no provocation for CRPF to fire. TMC MP and spokesperson Derek O'Brien went on to dub it as cold-blooded genocide. The video shows many locals gathered in a field, while some are seen wielding sticks. In the viral video, some central force jawans can also be seen. Soon firing can be heard, though it is not clear who fired the shot. Video shows a ruckus erupt in the area after the shots are fired. Earlier, Cooch Behar SP had said there was rumour that police opened fire. Debasish Dhar had added that the rumour led locals to come out in large numbers. The SP had said that this led the Central forces to open fire in self defence.
