The Election Commission on Monday (April 12) imposed a 24-hour long ban on West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee for violating Model Code of Conduct (MCC). This is the third notice that has been issued to the Bengal Chief Minister from the poll panel.
The Bengal Chief Minister has been banned from campaigning for assembly elections for 24 hrs till 8 pm on Apr 13 for her alleged remarks with communal overtones.
Reacting to the development, Trinamool Congress leader Derek O’Brien took to social media and wrote, “Always knew we were winning Bengal.”
“April 12. BLACK DAY in our democracy,” he wrote in another tweet.
