Going against the Election Commission for cutting short the election campaign in West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu opined that the poll panel’s integrity is at stake.
Naidu said that the EC is ignoring the complaints on Trinamool Congress but is immediately acting on the complaints given by BJP.
“It is even more disturbing to see the conspicuous inaction of the EC regarding the complaint of 22 political parties of the opposition to validate EVM counting with the counting of at least 50 per cent VVPAT slips in each Assembly constituency,” Naidu tweeted.
He said that the EC should restore its credibility by acting on the complaints made by the opposition parties and thus conduct free and fair elections.
“Giving clean chits to @narendramodi, taking unjustified prompt action after false complaints by @BJP4India, willful inaction on genuine complaints by opposition parties; clearly raises doubts about the neutrality, impartiality, and fairness of the Election Commission of India”, Naidu further said.
