From the first light of independence, the elections in Bengal have been an affair filled with violence, protests and poll rigging. The new Trinamool Congress government which came up with a slogan of ‘Badla noy bodol chai’, acted in a same manner like the previous governments.

The election of Kolkata Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) started with a bomb blast in Metiaburuz, and as the day progressed, the news of booth capturing and violence was reported from several parts of the Kolkata and its nearby areas. Incidents of violence were also reported in Ganguly Bagan, Baghajatin, Kankurgachi, Kasba, Metiaburiuz.

In central Kolkata, at ward number 36, three shots were fired at the CPI(M) contestant Faud Halim. The rigging and booth capturing were reported in ward no. 36, 55, 101, 111, 121, 96, 75, 77, 82 and 89 respectively.

In an another incident at Beniapukur (North Kolkata), a Congress polling agent was arrested for breaking the Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) machine.

Even after so many cases of violence, the West Bengal State Election Commission was in a denial mode and said that the election process was peaceful.

Sabyasachi Ghosh, Special duty officer of West Bengal State Election Commission, told NewsGram, “We have received reports of polling agents being stopped and other small incidents. The election process so far is peaceful.”

Human hair wigs have several advantages over synthetic wigs

By- Digital Hub

I prefer synthetic wigs as it isn't something that I would wear all the time - just when I look different. Additionally, their ease of use is an essential factor for me. However, suppose you're looking to wear a wig for a fashionable accessory or as a way for you to show your personality. In that case, I'd recommend buying multiple synthetic wigs of various styles and colors instead of only the one human hair wig at the same amount. However, be cautious - only purchase top-quality synthetic braids that are more expensive as you might be disappointed by the new style you've chosen.
