Kolkata: The much awaited kolkata Derby which was scheduled for Jan 25 at first got postponed due to the Saraswati Puja. The football fanatics waited with eager hearts to witness the ‘Partition’ of Bengal on Feb 11. But according to the latest reports, the Derby Match between East Bengal and Mohun Bagan might further get cancelled due to the bypoll elections at Bongaon and Krishnagunj constituencies.
The police sources have said that due to the vote, a large section of the police will be sent to the concerned areas to ensure safety at the time of the polls. As a result, there will not be enough policemen for the East-Mohun Derby. Hence, there remains a cloud over the 2015’s first passionate encounter at the Vivekananda Yuva Bharati Krirangan.
