EC’s delayed reply to plaints against PM shows it is now BJP’s poll dept, says Congress | India News

NEW DELHI: As it charged the EC of having become “one sided” and the “BJP’s election department“, Congress Thursday said the poll panel’s much delayed response to complaints about PM Modi‘s “brazen communal campaigning” is full of inanities in which it has not even mustered the courage to name the violator even though Modi has used “horrible gutter level speeches” which have not been seen in the country over 70 years.
Lashing out at the EC’s argument that making the boothwise voting data (Form 17C) public can result in morphed images and mischief, AICC spokesman Abhishek Singhvi alleged the EC’s reluctance stems from its desire to not allow a “total picture” of voting to emerge instantly so that questions cannot be asked about the data.
A day after the EC’s observations on the complaint against the PM, Singhvi said the poll body has delivered sermons and inanities instead of taking note of the violations and delivering punishment.
