Peaceful re-poll on in 11 West Bengal booths
Kolkata: Re-polling was going on peacefully Tuesday at 11 booths spread across six of the nine Lok Sabha constituencies in West Bengal that went to the hustings April 30.
"Peaceful repolling is on in 11 booths under Arambagh, Hooghly, Burdwan, Burdwan-Durgapur, Birbhum and Bolpur Lok Sabha constituencies," said an Election Commission (EC) official.
The EC ordered the repoll following scrutiny of reports after the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M)-led Left Front, the BJP and the Congress alleged massive rigging and booth capturing by the ruling Trinamool Congress activists during the third phase of election and sought repolling in a large number of booths.
