Kolkata: Madan Mitra who was previously the West Bengal minister, today blamed the section of police that was hyperactive and accused them to be the reason why he lost the 2016 assembly election.
He stated: “I have submitted a report to the Chief Minister (Mamata Banerjee) that a section of police including deputy commissioner, assistant commissioner of Barrackpore police commissionerate and inspector in-charge of Belgharia police station were hyperactive.
Former minister further went on to say that the voting percentage was declined by terrorising voters. Mitra remained unsuccessful in maintaining Kamarahati constituency in North 24 Parganas.
During his address to the media he assumed: “They tortured genuine voters including women who were not allowed to cast their votes. Innocent people were arrested 5-7 days prior to polls day.”
