BJP candidate Babul Supriyo’s car was vandalised during a political clash between Trinamool workers and security personnel at a polling booth in West Bengal’s Asansol.
The incident took place around 9am. Babul Supriyo accused the ruling Trinamool Congress in West Bengal of playing dirty tricks. “They want to confine me at a single place. I have to move to other places. Even those residing in buildings in front of the polling station could not cast their votes,” Supriyo said.
Supriyo is contesting against former actress and Trinmool Congress leader Moon Moon Sen from Asansol.
The Seven-phase Lok Sabha Election will end on May 19 and the votes will be counted on May 23 across the country.
