Kolkata: After a controversial election, CPM leader Rupa Bagchi lost to TMC candidate Shantiranjan Basu at Ward no. 32. This seems to be a big blow to the losing party.
In her defence, Bagchi said,” It is expected because outsiders carried out proxy voting and rigging. Plans for the future shall be decided later. At the time of polling police were inactive and people could were prevented from practicing democracy in a free and fair way.”
