Kolkata (July 01,2023) : The State Election Commission (SEC) is yet to receive a response from the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) on the deployment of the balance 485 companies of central forces for the upcoming panchayat polls in West Bengal. The SEC had requested the MHA to deploy a total of 900 companies of central forces for the polls, which are scheduled to be held on July 8. However, the MHA has so far only agreed to deploy 415 companies.

The SEC has said that it is waiting for the final reply from the MHA before finalizing the deployment of central forces. The SEC has also said that it will deploy additional state police personnel if the MHA does not agree to deploy the balance 485 companies. The panchayat polls in West Bengal are a crucial test for the ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC). The TMC is facing a strong challenge from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and other opposition parties.

The deployment of central forces is seen as a key factor in ensuring the smooth conduct of the panchayat polls. The SEC has said that it will not hesitate to postpone the polls if the MHA does not agree to deploy the balance 485 companies. The delay in the deployment of central forces for the panchayat polls is a cause for concern. The polls are a crucial test for the TMC and the BJP, and the deployment of central forces is seen as a key factor in ensuring the smooth conduct of the polls.

The SEC has said that it will not hesitate to postpone the polls if the MHA does not agree to deploy the balance 485 companies. This could have a significant impact on the polls, as it could delay the election process and give the BJP an opportunity to consolidate its position. The MHA needs to take steps to ensure the smooth deployment of central forces for the panchayat polls. The polls are a matter of public importance, and the MHA needs to ensure that they are conducted in a free and fair manner.
