Trinamool To Complain About “Misuse” Of Central Agencies To Poll Body

On Monday, a team of ten members of the Trinamool Congress will meet with officials of the Election Commission in New Delhi to voice their grievances on the alleged “misuse” of central investigative agencies against party candidates and leaders.

Derek O’Brien, the head of the TMC in the Rajya Sabha, will lead the trip, and MP Dola Sen is expected to meet with the whole Election Commission bench.

“The BJP is misusing central agencies against us. The way NIA, ED and CBI are working and targeting TMC leaders is shameful. We would request the EC to ensure a level playing field for all political parties,” Sen told reporters at the airport before leaving for New Delhi.

The TMC alleged on Sunday an “unholy alliance” between the National Investigation Agency (NIA) and BJP ahead of elections, prompting the central investigating agency to deny any mala fide intention and label the entire controversy as “unfortunate”.

A team of the NIA was allegedly attacked by a mob on Saturday when it went to arrest two main suspects in a 2022 blast case in West Bengal’s Purba Medinipur district, sparking a political slugfest with Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee accusing the investigators of assaulting the villagers.
