Kolkata: Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday alleged that voters in West Bengal were not being able to cast their votes freely because of the 'imposition' of Section 144 CrPC in certain areas during the ongoing Assembly poll.

"An unprecedented terror has been launched during the poll with the use of Section 144 of the CrPC in areas to stop people from voting," Banerjee alleged during a roadshow in the city.

She continued, "But don't be afraid. Please cast your own votes. Don't get intimidated by all those tricks,"Banerjee said.

Banerjee said the CPI(M)-Congress alliance was only interested in spreading canards against the state government.

"They can't see the development that has taken place in the last five years, because their mindset is negative."

The roadshow, was also attended by TMC candidates Javed Khan, Aroop Biswas, Shovandeb Chattopadhya, and they covered large parts of the Kasba, Tollygunge and Jadavpur constituencies.
