Voting for the election for the civic body in West Bengal took place on Sunday. While voting was largely peaceful in Haldia, there were reports of sporadic violence during voting in some other areas for other civic bodies. The five year term of the Haldia municipality came to an end in June. It is also crucial as the number of wards, which was 26 till last election, has now gone up to 29.
The Haldia Municipality has been a CPI(M) stronghold for years. Last election too, it was the CPI(M) that won this election. It is a significant election since Haldia is a key industrial town in Bengal.
Voting was held for Panskura and Haldia Municipalities in East Midnapore district, Nalhati Municipality in Birbhum, Buniadpur Municipality in South Dinajpur, Dhupguri Municipality in Jalpaiguri, Durgapur Municipal Corporation in Burdwan West and Cooper’s Camp Notified Authority in Nadia districts on Sunday. Voting also took place in the by-elections for two wards – Champdani Municipality (ward 12) and Jhargram Municipality (ward 7).
The elections come months after the Mamata Banerjee led TMC won four out of seven municipalities in the civic polls held earlier this year. However, with Haldia being a Left stronghold, it will be interesting to see who wins this battle.
