New Delhi| Jagran News Desk| Bahujan Samaj Party Chief Mayawati on Thursday came out in support of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and said that the Election Commission is acting under pressure.

She said that the Election Commission has banned campaigning in West Bengal from 10 pm because PM Modi has two rallies in the day which is unfair.

“Election Commission has banned campaigning in West Bengal, but from 10 pm today just because PM has two rallies in the day. If they had to ban then why not from today morning? This is unfair and EC is acting under pressure,” said Mayawati

She further said that the BJP leaders are targeting Mamata Banerjee which is a planned targeting and is actually very dangerous.

“It is clear that PM Modi, Amit Shah, and their leaders are targeting Mamata Banerjee, its planned targeting. This is a very dangerous and unjust trend and one which doesn't suit the PM of the country,” she added.

Earlier Mamata Banerjee said that it is an "unprecedented, unconstitutional and unethical gift" to Prime Minister Narendra Modi by the poll panel and added that she had never seen this type of EC which is "biased and full of RSS people".
