KOLKATA: Expressing satisfaction with the large voter turnout on the first day of polling in West Bengal, chairman of the State's Left Front Committee Biman Bose said here on Monday that he was glad that the first phase passed off peacefully.
“We will win a majority of the seats there,” he asserted when asked about the chances of the Left in the areas that went to the polls during the day. “We know that the eighth Left Front government will be formed.”
Mr. Bose said it was to the credit of people that despite provocations it was possible to conduct uninterrupted, civilised and peaceful elections.
Mr. Bose dismissed reports that some tea garden workers, who were found in an inebriated condition, had alleged that they were given liquor by supporters of the Left Front.
“This is all rubbish. We do not believe in conducting politics in this manner. Some unholy forces have entered politics…. In this vicious environment that has been created, these forces are causing such incidents,” he said
Mr. Bose said the Election Commission would be approached on the alleged use of black money in the Trinamool Congress election campaign, an issue raised by State Housing Minister Gautam Deb.
