Opposition constantly complained about capturing of party offices just 10 days before the election not only that the right to do rally and meetings were snatched by the ruling in the Ispat area of Durgapur. The administration was like hand puppets of those anti social.
The CITU union office was captured by the anti social sheltered by the ruling in durgapur ispat area not only that CPIM offices were attacked . During the pre election time cars without numbers plates were roaming all over the city and creating a fear factor among all . In this election police administration played the role of a blind puppet dancing on the rhymes of ruling
