Mamata hopes for `good order` by Calcutta HC on panchayat polls
Kolkata: With the Calcutta High Court asking the West Bengal government and SEC to come up with their positions on Wednesday after calculating phase-wise availability and requirement of security forces, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday hoped that it would give a `good order`.
