The Election Commission of India on Thursday banned road shows and vehicle rallies in the state with immediate effect noting that Covid safety norms were being flouted in West Bengal during campaigning,

It also said no public meeting having more than 500 people would be allowed.

The order said the commission has noted "with anguish" that many political parties and candidates are still not adhering to the prescribed safety norms during the public gatherings.

The orders will come into force from 7 pm on Thursday.
