Kolkata: After the sixth phase of Lok Sabha election, West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool President Mamta Banerjee has accused the BJP of using central forces for securing votes in its favour. Further, the Trinamool chief addressed, in a threatening manner, Prime Minister Narendra Modi that she would make him pay for every inch. “You have repeatedly defamed Bengal and me again and again,” Banerjee said.

Banerjee said at a rally in the Basanti area of South Parganas district, “I am not insulting the central forces. But they have been instructed to influence voters. In the name of appointing central forces in West Bengal, the BJP is forcibly sending RSS and BJP workers here.” she said, adding, “I suspect that RSS workers are being sent to West Bengal in central forces’ uniform.”

Banerjee said that a Trinamool worker was injured in the firing by the central forces that were in charge of security of BJP candidate Bharati Ghosh in the Ghatal constituency. She said, “Today the central forces fired at a polling station. I heard that one of my Muslim brothers was injured.”

Banerjee alleged further that the central forces were asking voters standing in the queue to vote for the BJP! Banerjee said, “How can they do that? Ask voters to vote for BJP? What is the job of central forces? Some retired officers are being used to vote for the Modi government and they are doing whatever they like.”

As if threatening the central forces of dire consequences, Banerjee said, “You should be ashamed of this… you are here to perform your duties. Today you are working under Modi, tomorrow you will be under somebody else. What will you do then?”

Banerjee further said, “There will be days in the future when you will pay for every inch. By ‘revenge’, I don’t mean killing but they will have to pay the price. Many a time, you have defamed Bengal and me.”

In West Bengal, about 770 companies of central forces were deployed to hold free and fair elections held in Lok Sabha eight seats in the sixth phase. Of all the States, the contest in Bengal has been the bloodiest, with several instances of violence including political murders. It has also been one of the most controversial, with reports of electoral malpractices arriving at a high frequency from Bengal. The State observed more voting (82.52%) than other major States. There are 42 Lok Sabha constituencies in Bengal. Voting for 33 of these constituencies has been completed in the six phases. In the last phase, nine seats will be up for grabs on 19 May.
