EC seeks details on 'Mamata attack': "How it happened, or who were behind it"

New Delhi: The Election Commission of India raises some basic and fundamental questions which probably every informed voter of West Bengal is seeking -"how it happened or who could be behind the incident (alleged assault on Mamata)".   Sources said the state government through its Chief Secretary in its report submitted to the poll panel referred to the presence of a huge crowd at the spot at Nandigram wherein Mamata Banerjee was injured on March 10; but there is no mention of the “4-5 people”, who the Chief Minister had earlier alleged had attacked her.   The incident had taken place in Birulia Bazar of Nandigram - where she is locked in a three cornered against Suvendu Adhikari of BJP and Minakshi Mukherjee of CPI-M.   "Yeh saazish zaroor hae. ...ek bhi police nahi tha. SP bhi nahi tha (This was a conspiracy, there was no police, not even the SP," she had said immediately at the spot on Wednesday, March 10, and had claimed that perhaps four-five people had tried to attack her.   It is understood the Election Commission has found the report of the Chief Secretary "sketchy" and thus probably it has been asked to submit another report with 'more details'.   Mamata's political detractors including from Congress, CPI-M and BJP have alleged that the episode appeared a part of scripted drama.   Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, Congress floor leader in Lok Sabha, has termed the episode as "Bhandami (fraudulent)" and suggested that Trinamool Congress was trying to draw a political mileage.   Trinamool Congress had earlier even blamed Election Commission for the 'attack' on their party supremo and had linked it to transfer of the state DGP.   The pol panel on Thursday also rejected the change that West Bengal DGP was booted out at the instance of the ruling BJP at the centre. It said, "This (Trinamool allegation) virtually tantamounts to undermine the very foundation and fabric of the Constitution of India, the most sacrosanct document in any democratic polity".   "People of Bengal had given him an opportunity for 10 years but she did not do anything....Now people are ready for her Visarjan (to dump her)," state BJP chief Dilip Ghosh said.
