#Kolkata: The Trinamool Congress (TMC) has demanded that the last two rounds of elections in the state (West Bengal Election 2021) be held simultaneously. Due to the rise of Coronavirus in Bengal, two special observers in charge of state elections, Vivek Dubey and Ajay Naik, made the same proposal to the commission. According to Election Commission sources, the proposal was made by two special observers citing the rate at which coroner’s power is increasing in the state.
According to two observers, at least 25 members of the Election Commission, which is in charge of managing the polls in the state, have been attacked. Already, two candidates from Samsherganj and Jangipur constituencies have died of corona As a result, polling had to be postponed in those two centers In addition, candidates from multiple centers have been affected by Corona In this situation, two special observers have advised the commission to hold the last two rounds of voting in one day Not only that, both of them have claimed that they are facing problems in conducting the elections in Corona Extreme. Vivek Dubey and Ajay Naik also questioned the additional forces by showing this argument
The Election Commission held an all-party meeting in Kolkata before the fifth phase of elections in the state At that meeting, there was a demand for holding the last three rounds of voting together However, the commission rejected the proposal and reduced the campaign period to the last three episodes But even after that, the growing corona in the state did not come The Trinamool Congress has again demanded that the last two rounds of elections be held simultaneously. Provincial Congress president Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury wrote a letter to the commission on Monday demanding that the rest of the polls be held once the situation in Corona is under control.
No official reason has yet been given for the commission not to hold the two-point polls simultaneously However, according to commission sources, it was difficult for the commission to arrange for the central forces to hold the last three rounds of voting together. However, the position of the commission on bringing the last two points together is not yet known However, once the notification is issued, the question remains as to whether it is possible to bring the polling day forward
The sixth round of voting in the state will be held on April 22 Voting for the seventh and eighth rounds took place on April 28 and 29, respectively
