Suvendu Adhikari, the BJP's Nandigram candidate, said on Monday that Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee "withheld details about six cases against her" when she filed her nomination affidavit. Later that evening, BJP leaders went to the state chief electoral officer's office to file a complaint, despite the fact that Mamata's candidacy had already been scrutinized and approved by the Nandigram returning officer.
The BJP complaint listed five police cases against Mamata in Assam in August 2018, all of which occurred during the anti-NRC protests, as well as one CBI case. Six cases have been brought against her that she has not stated in her (nomination) affidavit. Let's see what the EC says; we trust the law of the land, said Adhikari.
