In the midst of Corona’s deteriorating situation, the Madras High Court on Monday reprimanded the Election Commission. The Chief Justice even went on to say that the Election Commission is responsible for the second wave of Corona. He warned the Commission to make and follow the Covid Protocol for Counting Day on 2 May. If this does not happen then we will be forced to stop the counting schedule.
In fact, the Madras High Court was hearing a petition filed for counting on the Karur assembly seat in Tamil Nadu. The petition has demanded that 77 candidates are in the fray for this assembly seat, so the Kovid protocol should be followed here on the day of counting on 2 May.
Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee got angry during the hearing. He asked the Election Commission, “When you were holding election rallies, were you on another planet?” You did not stop the Kovid protocol breaking during the rallies. Electoral rallies continued without social distancing. Your organization is responsible for today’s situation. You are responsible for the second wave of Corona. Election Commission officials should probably be prosecuted for murder. “The next hearing in this case will be on April 30.
