Kolkata: CPI(M) lodged a complaint with
the Election Commission Monday alleging that a concerted attempt was being made to malign West Bengal Chief Minister
Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee by making telephone calls in his name.
"The chief minister does not make calls to
individuals just like that," Bhattacharjee`s polling agent
Bikash Ranjan Bhattacharya said.
Those who received the calls have complained that the
caller identified himself as the chief minister and spoke in
English in a commanding voice, he said.
The mobile phone number has been traced, Bhattacharya
said, adding that the CPI-M had drawn the attention of the
chief electoral officer complaining that a `concerted move`
was on to malign the chief minister.
CPI(M) sources said many complaints in this regard had
been received at the party office.
