MHA terms Mamata Govt's report ‘sketchy'

| | New Delhi

Terming the report on law and order from West Bengal Government as "sketchy", the Centre on Wednesday asked the Mamata Banerjee dispensation to submit another report providing full details of violence unleashed during the recent Panchayat polls by the ruling Trinamool Congress.

The communication sent by the Union Home Ministry told the State Government to provide specific details and action taken. The second communication was sent two days after a similar one following large-scale violence during the elections to the local bodies in the state on Monday. Over a dozen lives were lost in the violence. The Union Home Ministry has asked the West Bengal Government to provide a detailed report on the violence during the polls as the report the State Government had sent was "sketchy", the official said.

The State Government has been told to provide details on the circumstances leading to the violence and the steps taken to restore peace and punish those involved, the official said.

Despite massive security arrangements, widespread violence marred the panchayat polls. Clashes between the supporters of the ruling TMC and the Opposition occurred in many parts of the State, including North and South 24 Parganas, Nadia, Murshidabad and South Dinajpur districts.
