Kolkata: West Bengal BJP President Rahul
Sinha on Friday went on an indefinite fast before the Chief
Electoral Officer`s office here alleging non-cooperation by
the administration in holding of the party`s election
campaign.
Sinha alleged that due to non-cooperation by the
administration campaign schedules could not be met, which
included that of BJP national president Nitin Gadkari and
Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley.

Sinha demanded immediate suspension of the ADM of
North 24 Parganas district Randhir Kumar as also of the
Inspector-in-Charge of Uluberia police station for
`non-cooperation`.
"We could not get permission to requisition
helicopters, hold meetings in time causing either delayed
start of meetings or cancellation," he alleged.

The BJP leader said he would not withdraw his
hunger-strike unless the demands were looked into by the
Election Commission and met by the administration.
