As apprehended well in advance the ongoing ADC election today is fast turning out to be an exercise in pitched battles and unprovoked attacks with the PCC spokesperson and vice president Tapas De accusing the state election commission of abetting the malpractices. "The state election commissioner M.L.Dey who is currently on the latest of his multiple extensions is doing a lot to help the ruling party; last night he issued a circular debarring returning officers from visiting spots like polling booths except in emergencies ; the sector officers owing allegiance to the ruling BJP have been tasked to control things where intervention from ROs is required ;naturally the inevitable has happened and our polling agents , voters and workers are bearing brunt of the BJP's attacks and assaults" said Tapas De.
He cited many instances where polling agents of Congress have been driven out of booths and voters have been turned away before casting ballots, describing this as 'reduction of democracy to a farce'. He also asserted that in many areas police officers and employees supposed to be wearing name-plates on chests have taken them off to avoid being identified while indulging shirking duties . "What is happening today is shamelful and this will ultimately have dangerous consequences for the BJP which they do not seem to realize" said Tapas.
