The Poll Commission on Tuesday ordered repolling at one polling booth of Kolkata Uttar Parliamentary constituency in West Bengal. The re-polling in the parliamentary seat will be held on May 22, a day before the results for the mega battle of ballots. Necessary arrangements have been made for the re-polling.

The re-polling will be held in Polling booth number 200 in Kolkata Uttar Parliamentary constituency.

As per rules, all the political parties and the contesting candidates have also been intimated about the repolling as per the directions of Election Commission of India. 

It came after Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) high-Level Delegation comprising Union Ministers Piyush Goyal and Nirmala Sitharaman met the ECI Officials in New Delhi. They demanded re-polling in all polling booths that were hit by violence during the seventh and the last phase of elections on Sunday.

Speaking to media after meeting the ECI, Union Minister Piyush Goyal said, ‘Speaking to media, Goyal said, ‘We gave the Election Commission detailed information of the violence inflicted upon our workers. We reiterated our demand for re-poll for constituencies where violence occurred in 7th phase and earlier phases, particularly in West Bengal’.

In Kolkata Uttar Lok Sabha Seat, BJP Candidate Rahul Sinha is up against TMC‘s Sitting MP Sudip Bandyopadhyay and CPI(M)’s Kaninika Bose Ghosh

In 2014 polls Bandyopadhyay defeated Rahul Sinha of BJP with around 90,000 votes. Kolkata Uttar Lok Sabha Seat went to polls on May 19 during the seventh and the last phase of elections.

Elections for 543 Lok Sabha seats were held between April 11 and May 19 across 7 phases of elections. The counting of votes for the mega polls is scheduled for May 23.

Just like the last phase, the initial 6 phases in the state witness massive incidents of violence. Both TMC and BJP ever since the start of national polls is in loggerheads. BJP in a run-up to the polls is leaving no stone unturned to make a big dent in Mamata’s Bastion and eyeing a lion share from 42 Lok Sabha Seats.
