Chopra (WB), July 10: Continuing the attack on State Election Commissioner Mira Pandey, Trinamool Congress General Secretary Mukul Roy today alleged that her actions were encouraging the CPI(M), Congress and Maoists to create unrest in West Bengal.



“Due to your encouragement, the CPI(M), Congress and the Maoists are trying to create unrest in the state,” Roy alleged at a panchayat election rally here in Nadia district.

Roy claimed that though the CPI(M), Congress and BJP were alleging that the TMC was responsible for the violence before the panchayat elections, it was his party which was being attacked by them.

“In the last one month, twelve of our workers were killed,” he said.

Meanwhile, a Congress delegation met Governor M K Narayanan at the Raj Bhavan in Kolkata and urged him to caution Chief minister Mamata Banerjee for derogatory comments targeting the SEC.

“SEC is a constitutional head and the chief minister also holds a constitutional post. The way the CM is verbally attacking the SEC is unprecedented,” WBPCC President Pradip Bhattacharjee told reporters here after meeting the governor.  

Stating that late Marxist patriarch Jyoti Basu had also made adverse comments against the SEC, he said “But the chief minister is unrelenting in her attack against the SEC.
 
“The SEC is trying to ensure free and fair polls. What is the fault of SEC?” asked Bhattacharjee.
