Election Commission of India (ECI) must wear its impartiality on its sleeves: SDPI

Election Commission of India (ECI) must wear its impartiality on its sleeves: SDPI

New Delhi: The credibility of the poll panel was never before pushed to the edge as in the 2019 Lok Sabha Election.  The  decisions  of  ECI  are  being  viewed  with disbelief,  distrust and anguish.  Narendra Modi had made a patently communal remark at a poll rally in Wardha, Maharashtra on Congress President Rahul Gandhi for contesting election from Wayanad seat but the ECI surprisingly held that the PM did not violate the poll code. It seems that Modi-shah duo got absolute impunity from the ECI  as  they  have  been  breaking  and  violating  all  norms  of  the  code  during  the Electioneering.

Very recently an action the EC has sent shivers down the spine of election bureaucracy when an honest and upright officer like Mohammad Mohsin, General Observer of Sambalpur was hurriedly suspended for fearlessly performing his duty. The  rejection  of  nomination  of  Thasleem  Rahmani  of  SDPI  from  North  East  Delhi parliamentary constituency was also highly arbitrary and autocratic. Even though this arbitrary decision was brought to the notice of the ECI, the ECI did not act upon it.  This subservience  is  seen  again  in  Varanasi  where  the  election  machinery  has  been  in  an alarming mode to engineer an easy walk over for the PM. The election authorities citing ministerial  and  technical  grounds  for  the  rejection  of  nomination  papers  of  other candidates, including, Tej Bahadur SP-BSP-RLD candidate who is widely  recognized  as one of the main contestants against Modi. The nomination papers of another strong candidate, Bhagwan Das Vedant Acharya, representing the local feelings of Varanasi in view of damage to the cultural ethos as well as heritage of the city is also rejected. All these action show that the ECI is trying to curry favor with BJP top guns.

SDPI  strongly  feels  that  it  is  unavoidable  call  of  democracy  to  all   individuals, organizations  and   political  parties  to  seriously  and  immediately  take  up  the  matter regarding the failures of ECI so that democracy is saved and India may not turn into a banana republic. ECI must come out clean and restore the credibility of the Commission.
