BJP candidate Priyanka Tibrewal said that the Trinamool Congress government never takes any action against the state police even they are wrong.

“The police always works at the behest of the state government for which even their wrong actions go unnoticed by the state government,” slammed Priyanka.

However, the TMC didn’t want to pay heed on this development and claimed that just to gain importance the BJP has visited the Election Commission office and complained against DCP South Akash Magharia.
