BJP now alleges Mamata Banerjee didn’t mention about pending criminal cases in her by poll nomination

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has alleged that West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee did not mention about pending criminal cases in her nomination papers for Bhabanipur by-poll. The saffron party has also filed a complaint with the Election Commission against the TMC chief.

While the BJP has fielded Priyanka Tibrewal, a lawyer by profession, CPI(M) has fielded lawyer Srijib Biswas from the seat. Congress has refrained from taking part in the by-election.

The party has declared that Mamata Banerjee,  who must win the bypoll to remain Chief Minister, after she failed to win from Nandigram in the April-May election,  was only required to disclose details of cases if she is actually named in the charge sheet.  Earlier the Chief Election Agent for the BJP's Priyanka Tibrewal - the party's candidate for the bypoll - wrote to the Bhabanipur Returning Officer to register his complaint.

Banerjee was first elected to the Assembly in a by-poll from Bhabanipur months after the TMC stormed to power ousting the 34-year-old Left Front dispensation in 2011. She represented South Kolkata Lok Sabha seat, of which Bhabanipur is a segment, 6 times.
