Vote Loot Again in Bengal: A Glimpse

From our Special Correspondent

 

IN West Bengal, the TMC has just won Uluberia Lok Sabha bye election and Noapara assembly bye election. In Uluberia, they have won with a margin of more than 4 lakhs. In Noapara, the difference is more than 63 thousand. It is being touted as a ‘big victory for the development policies of Mamata government’. Even a section of secular political forces are bewildered by these ‘huge’ margins.

The fact remains that not even a semblance of free and fair voting took place in both the constituencies. Hundreds of armed TMC activists, even ‘voters’ were imported from different sections. From the early morning, Left Front polling agents were chased away from booths. As voters gathered in lines, they were threatened and chased away. In Noapara, voters were mercilessly beaten up in line. Thousands of voters were not allowed to reach the voting centre.

Samples from booths clearly show how the voting took place.

In Uluberia, for example, under Bagnan assembly area, following is the share of votes:

In booth no 171, TMC 549, CPI(M) 1

In booth no 113, TMC 594, CPI(M) 2

In booth no 114, TMC 575, CPI(M) 4

In booth no 115, TMC 882, CPI(M) 5

In booth no 123, TMC 924, CPI(M) 6

In booth no 168, TMC 870, CPI(M) 7

 

Under Uluberia North assembly area

In booth no 45, TMC 494, CPI(M) 1

In booth no 43, TMC 641, CPI(M) 2

In booth no 37, TMC 966, CPI(M) 2

In booth no 39, TMC 804, CPI(M) 3

In booth no 40, TMC 654, CPI(M) 4

In booth no 35, TMC 757, CPI(M) 4

 

Under Uluberia South assembly sector

In booth no 202, TMC 131, CPI(M) 1

In booth no 175, TMC 379, CPI(M) 5

In booth no 153, TMC 677, CPI(M) 7

In booth no 205, TMC 214, CPI(M) 5

 

Under Udaynarayanpur assembly area

In booth no 127, TMC 879, CPI(M)1

In booth no 153, TMC 664, CPI(M)2

In booth no 155, TMC 822, CPI(M) 3

In booth no 145, TMC 687, CPI(M)4

 

In Noapara assembly bye elections, mass rigging took place and the results reflected the all-out booth capturing. Here is a sample:

In booth no 21, TMC 979, CPI(M) 4

In booth no 22, TMC 967, CPI(M)5

In booth no 41, TMC 920, CPI(M) 6

In booth no 43, TMC 651, CPI(M) 2

In booth no 43, TMC 651, CPI(M) 2

These are just few examples. Hundreds of booths show the same kind of results. Figures tell the truth of how democracy is being trampled in the TMC regime.
