Campaigning for the fifth phase of assembly elections in West Bengal reached its peak on the last day today. Polling will be held in 45 seats spread across 6 districts.

Leaders of various political parties are on a whirlwind tour across the constituencies as they are leaving no stones unturned to woo the voters.

BJP president J P Nadda is holding a road show at Bangaon of North 24 Parganas before addressing two meetings in Bardhaman while Smriti Irani participated in a road show at Bardhaman before attending rallies in North 24 Parganas.

Earlier, Mr Nadda attended a programme this morning where he accused the TMC chief of being against dalits and said that the government of West Bengal has turned a deaf ear to their well being.

Trinamool Congress chief and chief minister of the state Mamata Banerjee visited Mathabhanga of Coochbehar this morning to meet the family members of the 5 persons who died at Sitalkuchi on 10th April, during the fourth phase of elections.

Later she addressed three public meetings in Jalpaiguri district before proceeding towards Haringhata of Nadia where she will be attending a rally this afternoon.

In a rally at Dhupguri, Ms Banerjee reiterated that no NRC will be allowed in the state and promised to initiate detailed inquiry on the Sitalkuchi incident.

Leaders of Sanjukta Morcha are also busy in campaigns in favour of party candidates. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is scheduled to address a rally at Matigara-Naxalbari constituency this afternoon before the campaigning ends in the evening.
