New Delhi: Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) members have alleged the West Bengal (WB) government of making efforts to derail the party campaign in the ongoing assembly elections. Annoyed over the issue, a BJP delegation led by their national Vice-President, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi met the Election Commission authorities and handed over a memorandum in this regard.

As per the allegations, the coordinators provided to the senior national BJP leaders by the WB administration during their election visits to the state gave misleading information and made efforts to derail the party activities. The BJP leaders have accused the coordinators of working as agents for CPI (M) and Congress.

The delegation further said due to the incorrect information given by the coordinators, helicopters carrying BJP stalwarts including Nitin Gadkari, Arun Jaitely and other leaders during the election campaign, failed to reach the destinations. The wrong details furnished by coordinators accounted for the delay in BJP rallies. 

The BJP delegation also informed the Election Commission that in a planned move, the state administration had cancelled BJP rallies at few locations. The saffron party members also alleged Congress-Trinamool alliance and Left parties of using black money in their election campaign.
