India Elections If PM Modi is allowed to campaign, opposition isn't,...

If PM Modi is allowed to campaign, opposition isn’t, is this Mamata’s ghost?

Chief Minister of West today took out a march from Thakurpukur to Taratala in Kolkata while she spoke to her heart's content in Mathurapur where she called PM Modi 'shameless' and a 'goonda'


New Delhi: Polling in the Lok Sabha has reached the seventh and last phase. All the parties have intensified their respective campaigns in a last-ditch effort to get as many seats as each can out of the seats that are left. In this campaign series, Prime Minister will address three public meetings in Uttar Pradesh and two public meetings in . PM Modi has already addressed a public meeting in Bhujauti Jhajhvan ground in Mau in support of BJP candidate Harinarayan Rajbhar.

After this, he headed to Chandauli, where he is slated to speak at a rally in the small town of Dhanapur. From there, he will reach Barkachha in Mirzapur where he will address the people in support of Anupriya Patel.

In the evening, PM Modi has rallies scheduled in Mathura and Dum Dum of West Bengal.

Apart from this, BJP national president will address rallies in Mehrajanganj, Sikandarpur (Ballia), Chivda Fefana village (Ballia), Deoria and Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh.

Why opposition can’t campaign, Kejriwal asks?

But since the ordered a stop of the campaign in Bengal tonight, following the desecration of Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar’s statue in Kolkata, the opposition parties have fallen like a tonne of bricks on the authority, accusing it of pro-government bias. Criticising the Election Commission, AAP head and Delhi Chief Minister said, “They allowed Modi ji‘s rallies and ended campaigning after it, it makes it clear that Election Commission is totally biased. It is very dangerous for the country.”

It sounds as though Kejriwal is speaking about the whole of India. But not only across India wherever the seventh phase of the election will unfold on 19 May, but also in Bengal, all parties are campaigning just as Prime Minister Modi is.

Mamata allowed, of course

Chief Minister of West Bengal today took out a march from Thakurpukur to Taratala in Kolkata.

Earlier, Mamata Banerjee addressed another public meeting in the capital of Bengal where she said, “From Lenin in Tripura to Ambedkar in and Vidyasagar in Kolkata, BJP has damaged these statues.” Here, Banerjee called Prime Minister Modi “shameless” and BJP chief a “goonda”.

Mamata Banerjee alleged that the Election Commission was “biased”. “BJP is directing the Election Commission,” she said.

The Bengal chief minister addressed a rally in Mathurapur where she accused PM Narendra Modi and Amit Shah of “torturing” people.

Mr Kejriwal, has not been banned either

Congress president Rahul Gandhi is campaigning in Patna on Thursday for party candidate Shatrughan Sinha and RJD candidate Misa Bharti.

The Congress president is leading a roadshow from Moinul Huq Stadium in Rajendra Nagar for Sinha. This event was supposed to begin at around 4:30 in the evening and end at the T-point of Nala Road. While Sinha is contesting from Patna Sahib, RJD chief Lalu Prasad’s elder daughter Misa Bharti is in the fray from Pataliputra Lok Sabha seat.
