#Kolkata: The Election Commission has banned any political party from entering the Sitalkuchi incident. However, the Election Commission agreed to provide financial compensation to the families of the injured and the victims to the state government (west bengal govt) subject to conditions.
No such announcement can be made during the election. However, the Election Commission has given a condition that the administration will pay the compensation, not on behalf of any political party. No political party can be given precedence here. He cannot even be mentioned in publicity. For that reason, with the permission of the Election Commission, the state government has decided to pay Rs 2 lakh to the injured and Rs 5 lakh to the victims. However, it is learned that the district magistrate of Kochbihar will deliver the compensation to the families of the dead and injured in accordance with the administrative rules.
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 the Election Commission said that no political leader will be able to go to Kochbihar in 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. Speaking at a press conference in Siliguri after the ban, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said, “The extra money that will be spent after the election as a candidate will help the families of Shitalkuchi. Hopefully, this will not violate the election code of conduct in any way!”
