The violent clashes in the Sitalkuchi area disrupted voting and claimed four lives.
“Home Minister Amit Shah is completely responsible for today’s incident and he himself is the conspirator. I don’t blame central forces because they work under Home Minister’s order. We will demand his resignation,” she said.

Raising questions on the action taken by the central forces, the TMC chief said that her government would initiate a police investigation into the incident.
“Where does this theory come from? Who was injured on their part? Is there any footage? After killing those people, they were supporting the act,” she said at a press conference in Siliguri.
