Bengal polls: Bihar model to be followed in state
The Election Commission of India (ECI) will follow the Bihar model, taken up last year for conducting the assembly polls amid the coronavirus pandemic,
during the upcoming election in West Bengal, a senior official at the CEO office said on Tuesday. The ECI has already started inoculation of the officials involved with the polling and the entire process would get over before the election starts, he said.
"Covid protocol is still applicable in West Bengal. We will stick to the protocol followed during the assembly election in Bihar," the official said.
