Desk: The Supreme Court of India refuses to interfere with the recent state of turmoil going on in West Bengal in connection with the Panchayat Polls. The apex court disapproved the idea of interfering with the date of filing nomination papers in the upcoming Panchayat Polls in the state.
Earlier on April 5, a West Bengal leader of BJP moved to the Supreme Court alleging that his party workers and candidates are beaten up and are not being allowed to file nominations for the forthcoming Panchayat elections of West Bengal. The leader sought the help of the apex court regarding this matter.
Meanwhile, the BJP accuses the ruling party for spreading violences across West Bengal from the day one of filing election nominations for the upcoming panchayat elections. On Thursday, a BJP candidate succumbed to his injuries after been allegedly beaten up by the TMC workers. While asked about the accusations made by the BJP, TMC Secretary General Partha Chatterjee said, “No violence took place. If there had been violence, no BJP candidates would have been able to file their nominations.”
