In the letter, the party’s spokesperson Derek O’ Brien has written, “It has come to our knowledge that Suvendu Adhikari, the candidate fielded by BJP in Nandigram has been harbouring criminals, who are non-residents of Nandigram. We request you to immediately intervene and direct necessary steps to be taken by police to forthwith apprehend all the outside anti-social elements hired and harboured by Suvendu Adhikari.”

TMC also mentioned four locations where it claims Adhikari has lodged anti-social elements.

According to the complaint lodged with the EC, around 30 to 40 young boys are residing in a two-storied building near Riya Para Hospital More, Nandigram since December. All these people are from Kolaghat, Pingla, Kanthi and Contai. These people travel in 10-12 motorbikes and are also in the possession of a car. These people also have a local guide. Shri Suvendu Adhikari has been visiting this location on a regular basis.

In the house of Meglinath Pal, Haripur, an election agent of Suvendu Adilikari along with 40-50 people stay here. It is a three-storied building, 1 Km away from Chandipur-Nandigram Road.

In the house of Pabitra Kar, Royal-1, nearly 20-30 people, who are from Balarampur, Jharucharan, Narsinghapur, Jatirmal, Panibitan, stay here. It is a two-storeyed building in village Teropakhira, Tengua No. 2.

In the house of Bhoiohari Samanta, Royal MSK area, around 20-30 people are sheltering, the letter read.

In another complaint lodged with the EC, TMC has written against BJP candidates Siddhartha Naskar (Nabadwip) and Jagannath Sarkar (current MP from Ranaghat and candidate from Santipur) who reportedly tried to carry out a procession with the dead body of one Milan Ghosh, a resident of Fakirdanga, Gholapara panchayat in Nabadwip yesterday.

The TMC also alleged that the BJP workers had threatened local law enforcement officers who wanted to stop this activity and carried out a procession (without the permission of Election Commission).
