The voting process for the Bengal assembly elections has ended. Now all the people are waiting for the result, when the counting of votes takes place on May 2, that is Sunday, after a day, and it will be clear who will win the victory. Here, this time all eyes are on the outcome of defeat and victory in Nandigram, the most high-profile seat of the state.
Politically, this center has become important because from here itself the state's Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee has a close fight with the ever close leader Suvendu Adhikari, who is now on the BJP ticket from here. Seeing the challenge of Suvendu, Mamta decided to leave her traditional seat Bhawanipur and contest elections from here.
That is why everyone wants to know what the result of the Mahasangram of Nandigram is. Here, in view of the possibility of unrest in Nandigram in view of the counting of votes, the Election Commission and the state administration are also fully alert.
Actually, people are afraid that whichever side the election results will be on here, there will be violence. Based on this apprehension and intelligence report, 13 companies of central force and state police have been deployed in Nandigram on the instructions of the Election Commission for the restoration of peace in the area. There was a lot of political violence in Nandigram even before and after the election. Several incidents including murder, beating, and vandalism occurred here. Even Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee herself alleged that she was allegedly attacked. There was fierce violence here on the day of counting and charges were leveled against each other by the ruling Trinamool Congress and BJP. In view of this, after the election results here, due to the fear of violence, much caution is already being taken.
OC (Thanedar) of Nandigram Ajit Jha said that after the April 1 voting, 13 companies of central forces along with state police have been deployed to maintain peace in Nandigram. Apart from Nandigram, the votes of Haldia and Mahishadal assembly constituencies will also be counted in this constituency. A total of 18 rounds will be counted. Only then will the final results be known. Therefore, the administration is maintaining full vigilance.
