Mamata alleges discrepancies in new electoral list

Kolkata: Alleging discrepancies in the new electoral list prepared by the Election Commission, Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee today asked the party leaders and elected representatives to compare it with the old list.

Banerjee, at the meeting of party’s decision making committee, asked the party leaders to prepare themselves for the Panchayat elections slated in 2018 in the state.

“Mamata Banerjee said that the list has been prepared without consulting political parties. She has asked the public representatives and leaders to compare the old voter list with the new voter list,” a senior party leader, who was present in the meeting, said.

The senior party leader said that there was no similarity in the master roll and the revised roll prepared by the Election Commission.

“We feel that there is a discrepancy and the BJP is behind it,” he alleged.
