BJP's Bengal in-charge Kailash Vijayvargiya accused Mamata Banerjee and her party TMC of trying to win the assembly polls through unfair means.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday approached the Election Commission with a complaint against West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. The saffron party claimed that the ruling Trinamool Congress was planning to disturb the upcoming assembly elections in the state through booth capturing. 

BJP's Bengal in-charge Kailash Vijayvargiya led a party delegation to the Election Commission to lodge a complaint against Mamata Banerjee over her recent 'khela hobe' remark.

"At a recent rally, Mamata Banerjee said 'khela hobe'. What does it mean? It is evident from her statement that elections won't be conducted in a fair manner...voters would be threatened. TMC will resort to booth capturing. We have apprised the Election Commission about all this," Vijayvargiya told journalists following his visit to the Election Commission.
