After the controversy over the biopic on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the CPI(M) has urged the Election Commission to ban the trailer of a movie, titled 'Baghini: Bengal Tigress', that is based on the life of West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress Supremo Mamata Banerjee.
A delegation of CPI(M) leaders, led by party general secretary Sitram Yechuery, met Election Commissioner Sunil Arora on Monday and protested the “gross irregularities” during the first phase of the Lok Sabha election in West Bengal and Tripura on April 11.
Apart from the demand that there be re-election at 464 polling booths in the Tripura West parliamentary constituency where “elections were completely rigged”, the delegation also sought a ban on the trailer of the film.
The Left party said that the movie could have an impact on free and fair elections.
