EC sends notice to WB CM Mamata Banerjee over CRPF comment

Reiterating the allegations she has been levelling against the central forces, WB CM Mamata Banerjee said that the CRPF has been working at the behest of Home Minister Amit Shah. Previously, Mamata Banerjee had alleged that the CRPF personnel were 'harassing' voters of West Bengal and urged people to 'gherao' the personnel. The BJP had, in response, claimed that the West Bengal Chief Minister's remarks against the CRPF are an indication of the fact that she has accepted defeat. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee lashed out at the Election commission after it served a notice to her for violating the model code of conduct. "You (EC) can issue 10 show-cause notices to me but my reply will be the same. I will always speak against any division of Hindu and Muslim votes," Mamata Banerjee said.
