West Bengal has any election – the current panchayat, local body, state or national – news reports point to so much violence. In panchayat elections underway, over 20 people died and several before the start of elections, and hundreds and hundreds of citizens and police injured. Things are so bad that opposition has not allowed to even file nominations and elections were delayed. With each and every passing day it seems to be only getting worse as Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and her Trinamool Congress appear to have mastered the art of poll violence to win elections. The state election also rarely if any files objections.
Without a full analysis, ONE MIGHT EVEN SAY THAT THE EXTENT OF VIOLENCE, DEATHS AND INJURIES JUST IN 1 ELECTION CYCLE EXCEEDS WHAT OTHER STATES AND CITIES GO THROUGH OVER MULTIPLE ELECTION CYCLES OVER MANY MANY YEARS. Think about that…
