About 300 Sangh executives and functionaries at an all-India level, people are still making a beeline at polling booths in large numbers. Speaking about it, “We have a good team with young players and can improve. download Indian Express App ? trembling hands resting between his knees and his head stooped low,“Humne sabar kar liya (I made peace)whose full bench arrived in Kolkata on Thursday and promised strict and urgent legal action against the Birbhum strongman,who walks around with a half a dozen gun-toting bodyguards in Bolpur his fiefdom Mondal among the Chief Minister’s most trusted aides recently passed distasteful remarks against actor Locket Chatterjee BJP’s female candidate in Birbhum’s Mayureshwar seat during a rally of TMC’s women members He also allegedly threatened rival candidates leading Chatterjee to complain to the EC seeking his preventive arrest Mondal received a show-cause notice and was asked to be careful in the future The TMC strongman responded by boasting before the media how he will perform "magic" and "vanish" all rival polling agents from the booths on Sunday when the second phase of polling kicks off Straight out of a PC Sorkar show where things dissolve into thin air before thousands of gaping audience Mondal said: "The same thing will happen here Nobody will be able to do anything" For good measure he also threatened to welcome the central forces with ‘gur batasha’ (candy made of jaggery) The blackish-red local sweet was seen as an euphemism for bloodshed The EC said that it has taken cognizance of the TMC leader’s frequent incendiary statements and the mountain of complaints against him from all rival parties and made it clear that Mondal won’t be allowed to carry on with his tactics "Regarding Sri Anubrata Mondal the commission is considering urgent legal action What that action is you will get to know very soon" chief election commissioner Nasim Zaidi was quoted as saying during a media conference on Thursday Referring to Mondal’s repeated inflammatory remarks Zaidi said: "We will not hesitate to take the most unpleasant action against those responsible if legitimate voters are unable to cast their votes" reported The Telegraph Though the EC remained tightlipped on the course of action indications are that an FIR could be filed against Mondal he could be arrested as a preventive measure and the panel may order him to stay away from Birbhum on Sunday and put him under 24-hour surveillance That’s not all What seems to have enraged the Chief Minister further are the additional and rapid steps taken by the EC which caught even Nabanna the administrative headquarters by surprise The poll panel transferred Birbhum superintendent of police Mukesh Kumar — a long-standing demand of the opposition who had brought charges of collusion against him — and the officers in charge of Labhpur (Debasish Ghosh) Bolpur (Jaharjyoti Roy) and Mayureshwar (Sanjay Srivastava) bringing the number of total civil and police officials removed to 42 the most ever It is the clearest indication yet that the EC has little faith in West Bengal’s law and order machinery and is a stunning indictment on the Mamata Banerjee administration If the panel a Constitutional body wanted to send a message to the state’s Chief Minister it seems to have succeeded going by the way the firebrand leader reacted to the series of events Mamata who has crossed swords with Election Commissions many times in the past pooh-poohed the EC’s show-cause notice against her and tore into the panel for putting Mondal under the scanner daring it to act against her beloved ‘Keshto’ and issuing an open threat: "Let’s see who touches him" Mamata has always turned a glad eye to Mondal’s many trysts with controversy and had defended him fiercely in the past blaming his lapses on an ailment which apparently lets little oxygen reach the brain She minced no words during a rally in Birbhum’s Siuri "Why should Anubrata be arrested If he is arrested then why not (CPM leaders) Surya (Kanta Mishra) (Mohammad) Salim Sujan (Chakraborty) and Buddha (Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee) If Anubrata is arrested many more will be arrested They won’t get Birbhum by putting Anubrata behind bars Let’s see who touches him" The Bengal Chief Minister also suggested in the rally that the EC which gets its powers from Article 324 of the Indian Constitution is acting at the behest of Prime Minister Narendra Modi Congress president Sonia Gandhi and Ahmed Patel her political secretary The delusional statements and open support for a controversial leader who has been at the wrong end of the law many times in the past point to scant regard for a Constitutional authority and the Chief Minister’s belief that the entire world is conspiring against her and her party It could still be a clever political strategy however if the TMC supremo manages to position herself as the victim as someone who has been wronged by a grand coalition of all political parties It would be the greatest travesty but all’s fair in love and polls all elections to Parliament and to the Legislature of every State and of elections to the offices of President and Vice President held under this Constitution shall be vested in a Commission (referred to in this Constitution as the Election Commission).A court in Surat issued an arrest warrant against Patidar quota agitation leader Hardik Patel for not appearing for the hearing of a sedition case against him on Saturday
