Seven-phase LS poll in Bengal aimed at "disturbing" law and order situation : Mamata
 
Kolkata: Reacting strongly to the seven-phase Lok Sabha elections in the state, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday alleged it was due to the BJP''s intention to "disturb" the law and order situation in West Bengal.

Addressing a press conference at State Secretariat, Nabanna, Ms Banerjee said, ?Only three states will have polls over seven days and Bengal is one of them. This is because BJP wants to disturb the law and order situation in the state.? But she stated that they will get a befitting reply as the Trinamool will romp home in all the 42 seats in the state.

She questioned the wisdom of holding elections for only two seats in the same area on one day but also mentioned that she is happy as it will lessen her workload and there will be more time to campaign in other places and in fact other states. The chief minister informed that journalists have told her that there might be another surgical strike in April. She said, " The party is not bothered about fighting elections in seven phases.

But as the weather at that time varies from severe heat to thunderstorms, this will inconvenience general public who will come to vote. " Ms Banerjee also informed that there will be a press conference on March 12 at 1530 hours where she will make further announcements.
