One of BJP’s local units in north Bengal “paraded” children wearing masks of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, alleged the Trinamool Congress. TMC’s senior leader in Cooch Behar and a Minister in the State Cabinet Rabindranath Ghosh said the BJP has violated the model code of conduct.“We have filed a complaint with the Election Commission,” Mr. Ghosh told journalists on Wednesday. In the complaint, Mr. Ghosh alleged that the children were “made to shout pro-BJP slogans wearing Modi masks”. A video clip in circulation shows the children shouting “Bharat Mata ki jai” wearing Modi masks and carrying BJP flags.“The BJP has crossed all limits this time, parading schoolchildren around in masks,” Mr. Ghosh said. BJP’s Cooch Behar district president Malati Rava could not be reached for her comments. However, another local official of the BJP said the “TMC has fabricated” the allegation.
