SOMNATH CHATTERJEE ON KOLKATA MUNICIPAL CORPORATION ELECTIONS
KOLKATA CORPORATION ELECTION HELD ON 18--04-2015:
Kolkata, 24-04-2015 : Reflecting on the role of the State Election Commissioner S. R. Upadhayay, Somnath Chatterjee, former Speaker said the officer’s case is a fit example of how an individual’s behaviour can be influenced by the company he is in.
“Today he (Mr Upadhayay) has to go to Governor and say that no one is listening to him and officers are giving contradictory reports,” he said, adding that he is personally acquainted to the officer and Mr Upadhayay had done good work as a bureaucrat.
Mr Chatterjee called the people to put up a non-violent resistance against any attempts of their rights being usurped by the ruling TMC government.
