WB polls: TMC rushes to EC with serious complaints

Kolkata: A delegation of  Trinamool Congress (TMC) leaders is set to meet the Election Commission of India today after the party raised concerns over the voting percentage on the poll body’s mobile application.

“What is happening @ECISVEEP?! Could you explain how voting percentage drastically reduced to half within a gap of just 5 minutes?! Shocking! @CEOWestBengal, please look into this urgently!” the TMC tweeted.

It also posted two screenshots of the Election Commission’s voter turnout app. According to the pictures, the voter turnout in Assembly seats in the Purbo Medinipur district rose by over 10 per cent in five minutes.

The Mamata Banerjee-led party also alleged that people voted for us but VVPAT showed them BJP symbol.

Meanwhile, a BJP delegation led by party leader Kailash Vijayvargiya will also meet CEO West Bengal today.
