West Bengal Polls: TMC leaders meet EC

Delegation of All India Trinamool Congress (TMC) met the West Bengal Chief Electoral Officer at 12 noon on March 27 to raise "serious concerns", as polling for the first phase of the state assembly elections is underway. "9 members met CEO of the state where we had submitted the memorandum should remain same as previous system in which people having voter ID proofs and identity of concerned booths only be allotted on the polling booth as agents, BJP had submitted a memorandum requesting to change the system of appointing booth agents wherein he must be a voter of the concerned booth and allow anybody at any booth. This is not acceptable to us as it would not be possible for any officer to detect a person who is not belonging to that booth or police station," said Sudip Bandyopadhyay.
