Instead of that you are acting only on the complaints of the opposition-sponsored syndicates, which has developed in the state this time.

Seven TMC workers are killed in poll violence. What steps the poll panel has taken? It only knows to act on the complaints of opposition-sponsored syndicates," she said.

People would have to "deactivate" these "complain syndicates", who are calling on the EC in Delhi every now and then out of "fear psychosis" by rejecting the opposition in the election in a fitting reply to the poll panel.

"Once the poll result is declared on May 19, they (Opposition) will be surprised as their dreams will be shattered," she claimed.

The TMC supremo further said her party would play an important role after 2019 Lok Sabha election. "Bengal will show the way to Delhi.
