Does EC take instructions from BJP HQ, Cong questions EC

Election Commission of India, Randeep Singh Surjewala, Congress, PM Narendra Modi, Art 14 & 21, Lok Sabha Elections, 2019, News

Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala said at a press conference, ”Election Commission has completely abdicated its Constitutional duty under Art 324 to ensure level playing field, besides negating the due process under Art 14 & 21 of India’s Constitution.

Every citizen is questioning the independence, impartiality, objectivity and fairness of the EC.”

Surjewala accused ECI of  ”punishing democracy” instead of punishing the goons and hooligans of the BJP, led by their President Amit Shah.

”It has created a fear psychosis by admitting ECI’s own inability to hold a free and fair poll. The order of the ECI is an unpardonable betrayal of the constitution”, Surjewala asserted.

He hit out at the EC again and alleged that they have become ‘pawns’ of the BJP.

”Has ECI become a mere pawn in the hands of Modi-Shah duo? As democracy is under attack from ruling BJP, time for ECI to submit before the people of India, instead of being stifled by PM and answer its actions and conduct”, he said.

He further went on to demand answers from the EC, that why did they wait for 24 hours to prohibit campaigning.

”Why did the ECI postpone it’s order prohibiting campaigning by 24 hours until 10 PM today? Wasn’t ECI’s order aimed solely at giving a free pass to the 2 public rallies of PM Modi at Mathurapur and Dum Dum to be held today?”, he asked.

Apart from Surjewala, BSP Chief Mayawati said, ”Election Commission has banned campaigning in West Bengal, but from 10 pm today just because PM has two rallies in the day. If they had to ban then why not from today morning? This is unfair and EC is acting under pressure”.
