The “courage” to ban Mamatadi

The Election Commission of India (ECI) on Monday imposed a 24 hours ban on the West Bengal Chief Minister. The TMC leader has been banned from campaigning for 24 hours.
This decision ECI to ban the TMC supremo was taken after Mamata Banerjee’s remarks against Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF).
She has been barred from campaigning from 8 pm on April 12 to 8 pm on April 13.
ECI has imposed a ban on Mamta didi for 24 hours. This is clearly done at the behest of BJP, ruling party in India. It is a direct attack on democracy and sovereignty of independent institutions of India. solidarity with Bengal Tigress, @MamataOfficial
