Diamond Harbour: WB CM Mamata Banerjee has alleged that the BJP has hatched a conspiracy to “replace EVMs” with the ones that have already been manipulated in favour of the saffron party.
She has also promised a “reward for a lifetime” to Trinamool cadres who can give a successful tipoff on such an act by the BJP.
The allegation came on a day when the campaigning for the seventh and final phase of Lok Sabha polls ended a day in advance following an order from the Election Commission of India (EC).
“They have hatched a plan to replace EVMs. All of you have to guard the EVMs. Don’t be scared of the Central forces.”
“Let our women cadres be at the front and don’t allow them an entry (inside any booth),” Banerjee said during an election rally at Diamond Harbour today 16 May afternoon.
Diamond Harbour is the constituency wherein her nephew Abhishek Banerjee is seeking re-election. But this time, he is up for a tough challenge from both the CPI-M and the BJP.
