Election Commission Of India : Corona infection is on the rise across the country. The National Election Commission (NEC) has questioned the Assembly elections in five states and Union Territories due to the epidemic. In such a situation, after announcing the results on May 2, the Election Commission issued a ban on the victory procession.
The results of the Kerala, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, Assam and Pondicherry Assembly elections will be announced on May 2. In that case, even in Corona, there was a fear that the victorious political parties would take to the streets with thousands of supporters in triumph. So the commission took strict steps to handle the situation. It has been made clear that no victory procession can be held during or after the counting of votes on May 2. Incidentally, the commission was questioned from the beginning about the eight-point assembly vote in West Bengal in Corona. On April 29, the eighth or last round of voting in Bengal. But the Election Commission has cut back on candidates’ campaigns as the transition graph is dangerously upward.
It is to be noted that voting is going on in the country during the Corona period. The Madras High Court on Monday expressed outrage over the role of the Election Commission at that time. The commission was severely reprimanded by Madras High Court Chief Justice Sanjeev Banerjee. According to him, the court will be forced to stop counting if it does not take appropriate action keeping an eye on the epidemic. The chief justice also said that a murder case should be filed against the commission officials. As a result, the pressure on the commission has increased. And as a result, analysts say that this time the victory procession has been rushed.
