On 15 June, the Supreme Court asked the Security and Finance Committee to control and deploy the central forces throughout West Bengal for elections. “I am waiting for one more thing to be done,” the court said, noting that until now there has been no effective steps to identify areas of value through law and order and that it will be used in a few days, in line with the SEC’s opinion.
Harming the situation will not help preserve the integrity of the electoral process.” The high court has decided that the central government should send the central military, whose cost will be borne by the state and no compensation will be paid to the state. The court noted that no concrete steps had been taken since 13 June, when the central forces ordered its deployment to the election-affected areas.
