"EC's truncated electioneering following Modi and Amit Shah's threat":Mamata

Kolkata, May 15 (UNI) Reacting sharply to the Election Commission decision to truncate electioneering in Bengal, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee termed it as "unconstitutional, unethical and politically biased".

"This emergency situation has arisen because of the EC decision... It's not an EC decision, it's a BJP decision. Modi is afraid of me and afraid of the people of Bengal. Amit Shah held a presser on Tuesday morning and threatened the Commission... Is this order a result of that threat? " she asked while addressing a press conference in the aftermath of the EC decision.

"Why is the Centre so against Rajeev Kumar? Because he has evidences against Mukul Roy and Himanta Biswa Sarma who are direct beneficiaries of Saradha? Why did the EC not act against Shah, why was he not showcaused when he was responsible for all the trouble? Why was the campaign not stopped today? Because Modi has two meetings in Bengal tomorrow? This is a biased decision. RSS men are being recruited in EC," she said.

She further went on a tirade against the Prime Minister and said, "Throw Modi out of country. Stage protest against EC all over the state. BJP thinks they are very smart, and we are fools."

" The Election Commission is hatching a conspiracy against us. BJP brought in goons from Bihar, UP, Rajasthan for Amit Shah's roadshow. Modiji, you are losing the fight. You will not be able to fight me, " she commented.

" How can the Election Commission remove the Home Secretary ? " asked Ms Banerjee

Meanwhile, Ms Banerjee rescheduled her campaign programme, and will hold election meeting in Mathurapur tomorrow before the PM's rally.
