Kailash Vijayvargiya said, “If the next assembly polls are conducted in West Bengal when the TMC is in power, people will not be able to vote fearlessly in the state.”

“We demand President's rule in West Bengal. If President's rule is not imposed in the state, the Election Commission should take the responsibility of ensuring free and fair polls.”

Vijayvargiya also said that if the West Bengal Police and other state government employees are part of the election process, then there would be no free and fair polls.
