The BJP in West Bengal on Friday accused the Election Commission of changing its attitude towards the party within four months and claimed that the election body had undertaken the “responsibility of making Mamata mamata win”.
“The commission had the responsibility to make Mamata win and stop the BJP. There was an attack on me, MP Arjun Singh and BJP President … nothing happened. The commission therefore was not taking our complaint,” said Dilip Ghosh, BJP National Vice President, on Friday morning.
Just before the polls, Arjun Singh told News18 that he was not happy with the role of question. Three months ago, the TMC used to complain against the EC and this time the picture was different. On Thursday, the number of complains made by TMC was less than that of the BJP.
