EC Orders FIR Against Babul Supriyo


Kolkata: The Election Commission has ordered for the filing of FIR against BJP candidate Babul Supriyo.

Supriyo has been accused of entering booth number 199 and lashing out at the presiding officer. Soon after the incident, the EC sought for a report on this.

Based on that report, the EC ordered for an FIR against him. Prior to this, the EC also ordered FIRs against Birbhum BJP candidate Dudhkumar Manda and Krishnanagar BJP candidate Kalyan Choubey.

It was being alleged that the TMC was not allowing the BJP agent to sit in the booth in Asansol’s booth number 199. Getting this news, Babul Supriyo rushed to the booth. He made sure the BJP agent could enter the booth and lashed out at the presiding officer. As this news came to the limelight through the media, the EC sought for a report on this.

The singer-turned-politician rushed to those booths where he got reports that the BJP agents were not being allowed to enter. His car was vandalised outside a voting centre in Asansol.
