Left Front chairman Biman Bose on Wednesday rubbished Trinamool Congress' allegations of rigging by CPI(M) cadre and said Trinamool chief Mamta Banerjee suffers from rigging phobia.

"Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee dreams of poll rigging, she suffers from rigging phobia," Bose told reporters here at the party headquarter when asked about mamta's allegations.

Answering a question on exit polls which indicated that the Left would lose several seats, he said "I don't believe in exit polls. These are only to generate business, just as twenty-20 cricket has done in evolving from original cricket."

Bose claimed that a CPI(M) leader Zainal Molla was hacked to death when he was returning home after casting his vote at Canning in the Joynagar constituency. However, police said that Molla was shot dead.

Bose claimed that several CPI(M) supporters were also injured in attacks in different constituencies at Bhangar in South 24 Parganas and Khardah in North 24 Parganas.
