Sitharaman Asks EC to Ban Her Over Violence


New Delhi: Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman met with Election Commission officials and appealed them to enforce a ban on the WB CM from campaigning.

Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi after meeting EC demanded the arrest of history-sheeters and flag marches by central forces as well. He accused Banerjee of “complicity” in violence allegedly aimed at the BJP, claiming that she has been “provoking” her Trinamool Congress workers to attack the saffron party’s functionaries.

“She holds a constitutional post but has been using unconstitutional comments, asking her party workers to take revenge and indulge in violence. She is complicit. She should be immediately barred from campaigning,” he said after the BJP delegation met the EC.

Senior BJP leader Nitin Gadkari also criticised the attack by “TMC supporters” on Shah’s roadshow.
