New Delhi, March 24

Trinamool Congress has taken exception to the deployment of Special Armed Police (SAP) from Uttar Pradesh in West Bengal on election duty.

“We strongly object to deployment of personnel of SAP from UP since it is governed by Bharatiya Janata Party, and the Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is a star campaigner for BJP,” stated a letter written to the Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) of West Bengal by TMC leader Derek O’Brien.

While appealing to the EC to not deploy police force from UP or any other BJP ruled states in West Bengal, O’Brien, who is leader of TMC in Rajya Sabha, wrote that they would not object if security personnel from a non-BJP state were given law and order duties in West Bengal for the smooth conduct of elections.

O’Brien added that central agencies were harassing TMC leaders in cases, which were at least five years old.

leaders were designed to influence the voters in the state by showing TMC in a bad light.
