#Kolkata: “Mamata Banerjee’s visit to Kochbihar has been stopped and the commission has become muddy.” Yashwant Sinha, who has just joined the Trinamool Congress, said this while sharply criticizing the decision of the Election Commission. “This decision of the Election Commission proves that they are not neutral,” Sinha wrote in a Twitter post. At the same time, questioning Mamata Banerjee’s decision to go to Kochbihar’s Shitalkuchi, Yashwant wrote, “In any case, Mamata Banerjee is still the Chief Minister of this state. So her decision to go to Kochbihar after today’s unfortunate incident was very fair.”
Election Commission has covered itself with mud by stopping Mamata from going to Coochbehar. After all she is still the CM of Bengal and it is her duty to visit the place of this unfortunate occurrence. We know for certain now that EC is not fair.

Incidentally, Trinamool leader Mamata Banerjee announced her departure on Sunday after the fiery situation in Shitalkuchi on the day of the fourth phase of polls. But on the same day, the Election Commission informed that no political leader will be able to go to Kochbihar for the next 72 hours. The commission also implemented the new rules before the fifth round of voting. Political parties will have to stop campaigning 72 hours or three days before the polls. The decision was made to vote without violence.
On this day, the commission has informed that no leader will be able to enter the next 9 assembly constituencies. In this context, the fifth round of voting rules also changed. It has been said that no political party or party representative can campaign any election 72 hours before the fifth round of voting.
