The Election Commission of India has dubbed the letter written by the Trinamool Congress (TMC) highlighting the Nandigram incident, in which West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee sustained injuries, as “full of insinuations and averments”.

The Election Commission said on March 11: “It is unfortunate that it (the TMC letter) is full of insinuations and averments.”

Reacting to TMC allegations, the ECI said: “(It is) completely incorrect to suggest that the commission has taken over law and order machinery in the state in the name of conducting elections and appropriated the whole governance structure.”

Commenting on the Nandigram incident, the poll body said: “It is indeed an unfortunate incident and needs to be inquired into with promptitude and dispatch.”

TMC leaders, including Mamata Banerjee, has alleged that the Bengal CM was attacked and hinted at the incident being politically motivated.

Meanwhile, a delegation of BJP has met EC officials in Kolkata to complain against the accusations levelled by Mamata Banerjee and sought a probe into the matter.
