EC refuses Mamata Banerjee’s demand to club remaining three phases of Bengal election  

The Election Commission on Wednesday declines TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee’s demand to club the remaining three phases of West Bengal assembly polls.

In a letter to the Trinamool Congress, the poll panel said election law and various steps it has taken to ensure safety of voters in view of the coronavirus pandemic to rule out any change in the poll schedule for the state.

Whereas, phase six of the West Bengal polls is scheduled on April 22, the seventh and eighth phases are on April 26 and 29.
