Asansol (WB): Accusing Election Commission of inaction, BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi today said the poll panel failed to check violence and rigging during elections in West Bengal, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh.
“I am putting serious allegations against you (EC). You have failed to stop rigging and violence in these areas. False cases have been filed against our candidate Babul Supriyo.
Election Commission's work is to protect people. I request you to fulfil your responsibilities in the right way,” Modi told an election rally here in support of Supriyo, the party candidate from Asansol seat.
The poll watchdog, he said, has all the government machinery at its disposal and more powers than even the Prime Minister.
