‘Will stage dharna to protest EC’s undemocratic, unconstitutional decision’

KOLKATA: Lashing out at the Election Commission over its decision to bar her from campaigning for 24 hours, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said she would stage a dharna in the city on Tuesday to protest against the poll panel’s “unconstitutional decision”.
Taking to Twitter, she wrote, “To protest against the undemocratic and unconstitutional decision of the Election Commission of India, I will sit on dharna tomorrow at Gandhi Murti, Kolkata from 12 noon.” The poll panel’s order came after Banerjee’s remarks against central forces and a statement which had alleged religious overtones.
