New Delhi: The Election Commission bans all victory processions on or after the counting of votes on May 2, after the Madras High Court severely criticized the Election Commission over the Corona transition. A detailed order will be issued soon.

Responding to the criticism of the Madras High Court, the sources in the Commission had said that the Commission took meticulous steps to ensure the defense of Corona during elections, first in Bihar and then in four states and one Union Territory. It is the responsibility of the State Disaster Management Authority to ensure the implementation of the Disaster Management Act to deal with Corona, but the Commission enforced its constitutional rights to ban the propaganda campaign in Bengal for the purpose of protecting people from infection.

An official said that the commission’s ability to successfully conduct Bihar assembly elections in November 2020 was widely appreciated. He said, ‘At that time the epidemic was at its lowest level. In the country, about 11,000 new cases were being reported every day in February and all the states and union territories in January-February were undergoing under-trial cases. Vaccination had started and there were signs of economic recovery. ‘

Only Election Commission responsible for second wave of Corona: Madras High Court

The Madras High Court on Monday had strongly criticized the Election Commission, saying that it was only responsible for the second wave of Corona epidemic in the country. The High Court termed the commission as the most irresponsible body and said that a case could be registered against the commission officials for murder charges.

The court gave oral warning that it would not hesitate to stop counting on May 2. A bench of Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee and Justice Senthilkumar Ramamuitt made the above remarks while hearing the Public Interest Litigation of the state transport minister and AIADMK candidate from Karur seat, MR Vijayabaskar.
