TMC delegation to meet EC tomorrow, urge it to hold by-elections in 6 seats

A Trinamool Congress (TMC) delegation will meet Election Fee (EC) officers in New Delhi on Thursday demanding holding of the bypolls in six vacant Meeting seats in West Bengal on the earliest.

“We’ll meet the EC officers on Thursday and request them to carry the bypolls quickly. We’ll request {that a} week for campaigning can be sufficient for the bypolls. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has already mentioned that she’s going to concentrate on holding the civic polls within the state after the bypolls are over. We may have nothing to say if the EC doesn’t maintain the bypolls on time, however will proceed with our demand,” TMC MP Sougata Roy mentioned right here on Tuesday.

Mamata Banerjee, who misplaced the Meeting election from Nandigram, must get elected within the subsequent six months to proceed as chief minister. In that case, the bypolls should be performed by November 5. After the election outcomes, Sovandeb Chattopadhyay, the TMC MLA from Bhabanipur constituency, vacated the seat to permit Banerjee to contest from there. Banerjee had gained from Bhabanipur twice since 2011.

Dinhata and Santipur Meeting seats fell vacant after BJP leaders Nisith Pramanik and Jagannath Sarkar resigned as MLAs to retain the Lok Sabha membership.

Within the Meeting elections, polling couldn’t be held in Samserganj and Jangipur seats in Murshidabad district because of the loss of life of the candidates. Khardah seat in North 24 Parganas district felt vacant after TMC candidate Kajal Sinha died of Covid-19 earlier than the outcomes have been introduced. Sinha gained the election posthumously.

In the meantime, state BJP spokesperson Shamik Bhattacharya mentioned that his social gathering was not in opposition to the holding of Meeting bypolls. “We’re not in opposition to holding the bypolls however why is the TMC not holding the civic polls within the state which might be due for the final two years. They need bypolls on time however we wish the election to the civic our bodies be held as early as potential,” the BJP spokesperson mentioned.
