Election in WB
Kolkata, April 8: It seems that the Election Commission (EC) might go to any extent to pressurise a furious Mamata Banerjee to abide by its decision of transferring a few officials of the state. According to sources, election in many constituency in West Bengal might be cancelled or postponed if the Chief Minister does not change her mind and follow the order given by the EC.

The EC issued an order of transferring 6 officials following complaints of bias against them. The officials are -- five superintendents of police (Sps) - Malda, Birbhum, Burdwan, West Midnapore and Mushidabad - and one district magistrate (North 24-Parganas).

However, Trinamool Congress (TMC) chief and West Bengal CM refused to follow the order daring the EC to take any action against them. Mamata on Monday, April 7 said, "I challenge the Election Commission to remove anybody while I am in charge."

She also asked, "How can the Election Commission transfer and name new officers without consulting the state government?" and added, "You will only listen to the make the Congress win, BJP win. You will have to take my resignation. I will not remove anybody."

Addressing a rally in West Bengal on Monday, the CM said, "...You (EC) take my resignation only then will I listen to you. I will not bow my head. It is an Election Commission conspiracy, a Congress party conspiracy, a BJP conspiracy and CPM conspiracy. I will fight alone. I do not care for conspiracies."

Polling in West Bengal has been scheduled to be held in three phases, i.e. on April 17, April 24 and May 12. Now, it will be interesting to see what  will be Mamata Banerjee's decision against the election commission.
