Men escape with ballot box from West Bengal poll booth

Kolkata, May 16: Unidentified miscreants, on Wednesday, escaped with a ballot box from polling booth no. 76 in Malda’s Ratua during the re-polling in the West Bengal Panchayat elections 2018. They were seen brandishing a gun. Re-polling is underway in 568 panchayat election booths spread across 19 districts of the state amidst incidents of violence at several places. The re-polling for West Bengal Panchayat polls 2018 began at 7 AM and will end at 5 PM. The counting of votes will be held on May 17.
Elaborate security arrangements have been made by the state government and police to ensure free and fair polling, a State Election Commission official said. 

Repolling has been ordered in 10 booths in Hooghly, 28 booths in West Midnapore, 52 booths in Coochbehar, 63 booths in Murshidabad, 60 booths in Nadia, 59 booths in North 24 Parganas, 55 booths in Malda, 73 booths in Uttar Dinajpur, 26 in South 24 Pargans, among others.

Addressing the media party workers at BJP headquarters in New Delhi, Prime Minister Modi said, "There is one more thing I want to talk about...the scenes from the Panchayat Elections in West Bengal. It was nothing but a murder of democracy. From the nomination stage to the day of polling, where was the spirit of democracy? People were bullied."
