BJP thank voters for peacefully casting votes by defeating conspiracy, accuse opposition of conspiracy

The ruling BJP has congratulated the voters and thanked them for smoothly and peacefully casting their votes in the statewide civic polls held today, defeating all conspiracies. Speaking to media persons the BJP spokesperson Nabendu Bhattacharjee said that the opposition had hatched conspiracy to subvert the election process but the common citizens and ordinary voters resisted and defeated the entire conspiracy and smoothly cast votes today all through the day during scheduled time. He however said that most of the complaints had been made from Ward numbers-13,14,08,21 and 32 , adding that BJP will welcome any inquiry or investigation that the state election commission and police may conduct into the allegations raised. "Most of the complaints were raised by hired and mercenary elements and they have no basis in reality; people had started thronging polling booths right from 7-00 AM in traditionally clad attires and continued to cast votes in a peaceful manner" said Nabendu. 

He added that in compliance with the directive of the supreme court central forces like the CRPF, BSF etc had been deployed and there was no complaint about law and order and if elections in 217 of 222 wards was peaceful the polls may be described as completely peaceful and smooth. Nabendu said that in Ward no-36 a BJP worker had been attacked and injured and he is now admitted to GBP hospital. He yet again thanked the electorate of the state and added that in case vested interests try to create any further trouble the BJP will resist them with support from people. He said that the opposition not only could not deploy polling agents in different booths but they had not even drawn authorization papers for putting up polling agents. 

Apart from this, the state Congress lashed out at what they alleged to be a 'reduction of election to a farce by the ruling party'. The PCC spokesperson Prashanta Senchowdhury gave a detailed picture of what Congress candidates and voters had encountered while trying to vote and demanded total repoll in all the civic bodies.
