Bengal panchayat polls on May 14

Filing nominations for Panchayat elections in West Bengal ends today

This comes after the West Bengal government had sent a proposal on the dates of the upcoming Panchayat polls to the state election commission.

He said, "We met the state election commissioner and appealed to him to make it sure that the polls are not scheduled during the Ramzan".

As per the original schedule for the West Bengal Panchayat Elections, the polling was to happen in three phases on May 1, 2 and 5. Altogether, eleven candidates had moved Calcutta High Court on Monday after they could not file nomination papers due to pre-poll violence.

The Bharatiya Janata Party has admitted that it has fielded thousands of independent candidates in West Bengal Panchayat elections to "evade" the "obstacles" of Trinamool Congress in filing nominations. A total of 16 women have filed nominations as BJP candidates and 12 from JD-S. State BJP General Secretary Pratap Banerjee, on the other hand, claimed the party had moved the court "for a free and fair election".

Raising the issue of less then enough security cover, Communist Party of India (Marxist) leader Biman Bose alleged that the election has been turned into a farce and the commission has become a puppet in the hands of the state government.

According to this rule, the election can not be held before May 14.
