SILIGURI -- Amid tight security, the West Bengal Election Commission on Wednesday started the counting process for the rural polls in the Siliguri Mahakuma Parishad area.
Sufficient police arrangements have been given from all the five police stations in the area. There have been no reports of any violence so far.
According to reports, the commission has made arrangements for a two-tier security cordon in the counting premises. CCTV cameras have also been set up at all venues to keep vigilance.
The counting is happening a day after Susanta Upadhyaya resigned from post of West Bengal Election Commissioner, after he was publically threatened by TMC leadership to announce the dates for counting votes to Civil bodies Election.
