Mamata blames Congress, CPM for panchayat poll violence

Alleging that Congress-CPM nexus for area domination led to violence during the fourth phase of the panchayat election in West Bengal, chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday warned that they would face ‘horrendous’ time.

‘Those fighting for area domination using bombs and guns should know that horrendous times are ahead for them. The law will not spare them. Leaders providing incitement with bombs should remember Bengal has no place for miscreants,’ she told a panchayat election meeting in Jalpaiguri district. Banerjee claimed there was no trouble in the first three phases of the polls in nine south Bengal districts, considered to be Trinamool stronghold.

‘There was no firing and throwing of bombs in the first three phases of polling and the polls were held peacefully,’ the chief minister said at the campaign for the fifth and final phase of the polls. Meanwhile poll violence continued on Tuesday in trouble-torn Murshidabad and Birbhum districts, a day after panchayat election was held there, leaving four persons dead.
