"The seventh phase of the West Bengal elections takes place today. Urging people to exercise their franchise and follow all COVID-19 related protocols," PM Modi tweeted.

Union Minister Piyush Goyal too urged people to vote for growth and development. "As voting in West Bengal enters Phase-7, I urge all eligible voters to exercise their franchise and vote for growth and development of the state," Goyal tweeted.
