Mamata asks if poll dates set on advice of PM, Amit Shah.

Hours after the Election Commission of India (ECI) announced the Assembly poll dates for West Bengal and three other states, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday wondered if it had announced the eight-phase schedule for the state on the “advice” of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah.

The Trinamool Congress chief asked if the Assembly polls can be conducted in three phases in Assam and in one phase in Tamil Nadu why the schedule for Bengal was spread over eight phases.
