West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee slammed Election Commission for curtailing campaigning in the state by a day. Mamata said that EC is acting on the instructions of the BJP. The poll body shortened the campaigning a day after violence during BJP leader Amit Shah's roadshow. In a press briefing, Mamata Banerjee said that she has never seen this type of EC and it is full of RSS people. The TMC leader said, "There is no such law and order problem in West Bengal that Article 324 can be clamped. It is unprecedented, unconstitutional and unethical. It is actually a gift to Modi and (BJP president) Amit Shah".
