The Allahabad High Court’s observation is that the Election Commission, the High Court and the government did not understand what could happen to the Corona situation in the country after the election. The court also criticized the commission for not allowing elections in different states.
This observation was made by a single bench of Justice Siddhartha Burma of Allahabad High Court. “The Uttar Pradesh government is facing a tough test to deal with the infection in urban areas,” the judge said. At the moment, sample testing in rural areas, finding the source of infection and treating the infected are also quite difficult tasks. The government has not prepared for it before. ”
The court feared that many people arrested by the police during the panchayat elections in Uttar Pradesh may have become infected. “Many FIRs have been lodged in rural areas during the panchayat elections in the state,” the judge said. Judging by the whole situation, it can be seen that many of the people arrested may have been infected. Their infection may not have been caught. ”
The Election Commission, on the other hand, said in an application to the Supreme Court last week that the court’s observations should not be published in the media. Recently, the Madras High Court said that the Election Commission has the biggest hand behind the increase in infections in India. Therefore, a ‘murder case’ should be filed against the commission. Opposition groups called for the beleagured PM to resign. In that context, the Election Commission has applied to the country’s top court.
