Mamta Banerjee demanded by-election from the Election Commission
Banerjee said in the secretariat, “If it is so, I will ask the Prime Minister to give his approval. The situation is fine now but if there is a third wave of the pandemic, you can’t do anything.” He said, “We are waiting (for the decision of the Election Commission) to conduct the by-election as soon as possible because the situation of Kovid-19 is completely under control. That’s why I think they can conduct elections in seven days. There is no need to give so much time to the candidates.”
