Newdelhi:25/4/21:Election Commission has decided to deploy 653 companies of central forces for the seventh phase of Assembly elections in West Bengal. 34 constituencies spread over five districts will go to polls in this phase tomorrow. Out of five districts going to the polls in the seventh phase, three districts — Malda, Murshidabad, and South Dinajpur — share borders with Bangladesh. Deployment of forces in these three bordering districts is far more than in the other two districts, indicating that the poll panel is trying to plug infiltration attempts during the elections. The move is aimed at preventing any kind of violence during the polling and ensuring free, fair, and peaceful voting.
