On March 29, the day of the last campaign in Nandigram, BJP candidate Shuvendu Adhikari made indecent remarks to opposition candidate Mamata Banerjee. He referred to her as ‘Mamata Begum’. The Trinamool Shibir raised strong objections at first. They complained to the Election Commission that it was disrespectful. A week after the allegations were thoroughly investigated, the commission identified Shuvendu’s remarks as an election violation. And then the news that steps have been taken to send a notice to Shuvendu.

Shuvendubabu will have to explain to the commission within the next 24 hours why the BJP candidate from Nandigram has used this word about the opposition. However, neither Shuvendu Adhikari nor anyone from the Gerua camp has yet commented on the commission’s show cause notice. However, one thing became clear in this step of the commission. The fact that Mamata Banerjee and Trinamool Shibir leaders have accused the Election Commission of being biased towards the BJP is not true, as evidenced by the showcasing of the heavyweight BJP candidate.
