Congress alleges TMC workers threatened voters
Kolkata: Congress on Sunday lodged a complaint with the Election Commission alleging that Trinamool Congress workers threatened voters in the presence of micro-observers at some booths in the Howrah Lok Sabha constituency where a bye-election was held.
West Bengal Congress president Pradip Bhattacharya said, "The complaints have been sent to the Chief Election Commissioner and Chief Electoral Officer here with all details."
He felt that the micro-observers should have taken action against attempts to capture booths in the Howrah North, Bally and Panchla Assembly segments.
"Some TMC workers even moved in motorbikes from one booth to another in front of security personnel and micro-observers and smashed TV cameras of photojournalists of a local channel" he alleged.
