The Election Commission Sunday said it had sought a report from the Birbhum district magistrate on Trinamool Congress MP and Bengali actress Satabdi Roy's address at a rally, where she said that priority for development will be given to those areas from which she corners the maximum number of votes.

Officer on special duty in the CEO's office Amit Ray Chaudhury said the district magistrate has been asked to submit the recordings of the address and a detailed report.

Roy, who is recontesting from the Birbhum Lok Sabha seat, said at a rally Saturday: "The areas from which we get the maximum number of votes, will witness swifter progress, whereas the areas from which less votes come, will see development later."
