Kolkata, July 23: Accusing the West Bengal government of destroying democratic values of the state, Left Front chairman Biman Bose on Tuesday alleged that Trinamool Congress leaders had engaged in a competition for inciting violence.
"The Trinamool Congress leaders have indulged in a competition for inciting violence. The leaders of that party are now in a competition with each other for scoring brownie points," Bose said. He said that the state government had kept its constitutional duties at bay to indulge in the destruction of democratic values.
Bose demanded that proper security arrangement be made for the last phase of pancahayat poll in Jalpaiguri, Coochbehar and North and South Dinajpur districts in view of the large number of deaths in the last three phases. "Proper security arrangements should be made for the fifth phase.
So that violence doesn't take place and people can exercise their franchise," Bose said. Bose also alleged that the TMC had let loose a reign of terror in the last four phases by indulging in rigging and booth capturing.
