"We have requested the Election Commission to take strict action against those who try to spread violence during eight-phase assembly elections in West Bengal. Our aim is to ensure that elections are conducted in a free and fair manner," said Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury.

A total of 824 assembly constituencies shall be going for polls in four states--Kerala, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, Assam-- and the Union Territory of Puducherry, said Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Sunil Arora on Friday.

The polling in these states will start from March 27 and end on April 29. The counting of votes for elections to four states and one UT will be held on May 2.
