The Election Commission has pasted a notice on the walls of former CPI(M) MP Anil Basu’s house, requesting him to collect a copy of the complaint and the CD from the district election officer’s office.
“According to the commission’s instruction, district election officer of Hooghly sent a copy of the complaint and the CD to his office twice on Monday but as there was nobody to collect, it couldn’t be handed over to him,” chief electoral officer Sunil Gupta said.
“Without any other alternative the DEO plastered a notice at his home, requesting him to collect the documents from the DEO office,” Gupta said.
Basu had asked for a copy of the complaint against him and the CD submitted to the Election Commission by Trinamool Congress, where he is alleged to have abused Mamata Banerjee. “He was supposed to give a reply by 5 pm but as he has not yet collected the documents, a fresh date and time will be allotted,” Gupta said.
The Trinamool had demanded action against Basu for his remarks against Banerjee.
