After meeting Chief Electoral Officer Sunil Gupta, Deb said his party had demanded that Basudeb Banerjee be removed from the post of chief secretary by the Election Commission.

He said Banerjee was head of the entire state machinery and was showing “bias” towards Trinamool.

The party has also demanded that central forces be deployed in adequate numbers and that they must play an adequate role in safeguarding peace in the areas where elections are due, Deb says.

“Border between districts must be sealed and properly monitored to prevent criminals from entering to disturb the poll process. Border also be sealed within the district where election will be held on April 21 and 30,” Left Front chairman Biman Bose said in a letter to the CEO.

He said that the CEO’s office should send stern message to the police administration that any partisan role would be penalised.
