The playback singer turned politician Babul Supriyo has invited the unwanted trouble in the phase 4 Lok Sabha elections. The Election Commission has directed the West Bengal Police to register FIR against him for allegedly trespassing into booth number 199 and threatening a polling agent and an officer.
The incident took place in the Barabani area after he went inside a polling booth to ensure that his party agents were allowed inside. The rear glass of the vehicle was shattered.
“They are trying to stop me. But they won’t be able to stop me like this. I will move to ensure that BJP agents are allowed,” Supriyo told the media.
“These men have attacked my car but said I was resorting to hooliganism. It is a ploy to confine me at a place but I will move.
“Central force can take charge of the booths but the agents are not able to come out from their houses. I will try to go to as many places as possible and help them. This is the modus operandi of the ruling party,” he added.
Trinamool workers, on the other hand, alleged that Supriyo and his men had manhandled them.
The Election Commission had sought a detailed report about the matter.
Seventy-two constituencies across nine states recorded a voter turnout of 50.06 percent till 3 pm on Monday, 29 April, as India voted in the fourth phase of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
