Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) state unit chief Rahul Sinha on Saturday launched an indefinite hunger strike outside the state chief electoral officer’s (CEO) office, alleging non-cooperation by district election officials, which was hindering the party’s election campaign.

“Many of our campaign schedules including rallies of BJP president Nitin Gadkari and leader of the Opposition in RS Arun Jaitley, have been cancelled,” said Sinha.

He demanded suspension of North 24-Parganas ADM Randhir Kumar and officer in-charge of Uluberia police station, Howrah, for their non-cooperation. “Unless the CEO assures necessary actions, I will not call off my hunger strike,” Sinha added.
