Kolkata: Congress on Saturday supported the State Election Commission's suggestion of deployment of Central forces to conduct the panchayat elections in West Bengal.

The deployment of Central forces is aimed at "ensuring peaceful polls so that no lives are lost," AICC general secretary Shakeel Ahmed said.

"Whatever steps the State Election Commission will take, we will support," Ahmed, who is in charge of the West Bengal unit, told reporters here.

Ahmed arrived here to discuss the party's strategy with WBPCC leaders for the coming panchayat polls.
