Kolkata: West Bengal State Election Commissioner Amarendra Kumar Singh on Monday rejected BJP national secretary Rahul Sinha’s claim that he had received death threat from the Trinamul Congress. He also brushed aside Mr Sinha’s allegation that his telephone was being tapped and his conversations were being recorded during meetings.

Mr Singh’s comments came a day after Mr Sinha complained during Meet the Press at the Kolkata Press Club that Mr Singh was threatened by the Trinamool to kill him.

 

At a press meet Mr Singh said, “On Sunday a political party talked about some issues at a press meet. One is that death threat has been given to me. I thought about it a lot since Sunday. Some journalists also contacted me through calls and SMSes. I think I should verify it. I have received no death threat from the Trinamul or any other political party or any individual. Secondly, when a delegation comes to meet me in my chamber, some unknown persons wait outside and they record our conversation.”

He added, “But the fact is when a delegation arrives, my security staff remains there. But no outsider stays there. The three persons who stay there, I know them. So it is false and is ruled out that unknown persons remain present during any delegation’s visit to me. Thirdly it is also not correct that my conversations are tapped. But I can not say if anyone had done it long before. From April 10 there has been no delegation which visited me.”
