EC works as personal agent of PM Narendra Modi, damaged EC’s good work done by Sheshan

It is to be noted that in March a notification was issued by the EC directing all the political parties to not drag armed forces into the poll campaign.

PM Narendra Modi’s speech asking voters to dedicate ballot to Balakot did not violate poll code felt EC that clearly spells EC’s stand as the personal agent of Narendra Modi and the BJP.

The Election Commission on Wednesday, unfortunately, abused its authority in giving a clean chit to Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying that he did not violate the model code of conduct while appealing to first-time voters in Latur, Maharashtra, citing the Pulwama terror attack and the air strikes at Balakot in Pakistan. The demands that ECI needs to revamped by the dismissal of all its members and post impersonalized and Judicious personnel to adjudicate national mandate-exigencies without falling prey to a single party.

The poll panel by an eyewash said in a statement that it has examined the matter and after examining the transcript of the speech delivered by PM Modi in Latur, the commission is of the “considered view that in this matter no such violation of the extant advisories/provisions is attracted. The EC members have spoiled
EC’s credibility set by Great son of India, former Election Commissioner Sheshan sir.

“I want to ask my first-time voters, can your first vote be dedicated to the soldiers who conducted the Balakot air strikes? Can your first vote be in the name of the martyrs who lost their lives in Pulwama?” PM Modi had said in Latur on April 9, which went in vain.

It is to be noted that in March a notification was issued by the EC directing the political parties to not drag armed forces into the poll campaign. The poll panel had issued the order after the Congress and other opposition parties had accused the BJP of using the air strikes at Jaish-e-Mohammed terror camp in Balakot for political advantage. Present EC members lost the national credibility, and the PM Modi has pulled down the national Institutions such as CBI, RAW, RBI, politicized the Armed Forces and now ECI and made them to dance for BJP’s tunes.

It is unfortunate that on Tuesday, the EC had given clean chit to PM Modi over his speech in Wardha, Maharashtra, saying that he did not violate poll code during the speech. Is BJP’s PM Modi is above Board?

ECI lost its mandate by saying in a premeditated statement that the matter has been examined in detail in accordance to the extant guidelines/provisions of the Model Code of Conduct, the Representation of the People Act and the report of the Chief Electoral Officer, Maharashtra. Accordingly, the commission is of the non-considered view that in this matter no such violation has been noticed, by doing so, EC has acted very personally.

Earlier this month, while addressing a rally in Maharashtra’s Wardha, the prime minister had made a reference to Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s decision to also contest from Kerala’s Wayanad and had said that the Congress was “scared” to field its leaders from constituencies where majority dominates.

While following one-way traffic, the EC issues notice to Congress chief Rahul Gandhi over remark on PM Modi, seeks reply within 48 hours

Two BJP workers Om Pathak and Neeraj who appear to have gained masters degrees in conspiracies against the, in a preplanned manner, had approached the EC with the complaint, following which a report was sought from MP poll authorities. Accordingly, the EC nodding  its head in yes man type, issued notice to Congress chief Rahul Gandhi over remark on PM Modi, seeks reply within 48 hours

The Election Commission (EC) late on Wednesday evening issued a notice to Congress president Rahul Gandhi over his remark on PM Narendra Modi. The EC sought a reply within 48 hours from Rahul for violating the model code of conduct. It is acting and following one-way traffic and working against the national spirit in conducting free and fair elections in the Country. Addressing a rally in Madhya Pradesh’s Shahdol on April 23, Rahul had allegedly remarked that PM Modi has made a new law which allows tribal to be shot at.

The EC statement read, “Ab Narendra Modi ne naya kanoon banaya hai. Adivasiyo ke liye naya kanoon banaya hai, usme ek line likhi hai ki Adivasiyo ko goli se mara ja sakega. Kanoon mein likha hai ki Adivasiyo par aakraman hoga, aapki zameen chinte hai, jungle lete hai, jal lete hai aur phir kehte hai ki Adivasiyo ko goli maar di ja sakti hai (Now, Narendra Modi has made a new law. The new law is made for tribals in which there is a line that reads tribals can be shot at. The law states there will be attacks on the tribals, they will snatch your land, take away your jungle, water and then say that tribals can be shot at).” The EC has asked for the reply failing which it’ll take a decision without further reference to him.

Today nation becomes orphan in absence of Tirunellai Narayana Iyer Seshan, a retired 1955 batch Indian Administrative Service officer of Tamil Nadu cadre, best remembered as the man who cleaned up elections in India. He was the 10th Chief Election Commissioner of India, who reformed elections by largely ending its malpractices in the country.
