Election Commission Goes To Supreme Court Over High Court's 'Murder' Rap

The Election Commission has approached the Supreme Court against Madras High Court



New Delhi:

The Election Commission has complained to the Supreme Court against what it called “blatantly disparaging remarks” by the Madras High Court over holding polls amid the deadly second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The high court on April 26 said the Election Commission “should probably be booked for murder” for not stopping political rallies for Tamil Nadu election amid a Covid spike. The high court later said in its order that “at no cost can counting become a catalyst for a further surge”. Votes for elections to four states and one Union Territory will be counted tomorrow.

“The Madras High Court made blatantly disparaging and derogatory remarks,” the Election Commission told the Supreme Court today. In its plea, the Election Commission said the Madras High Court “despite being an independent constitutional authority made serious allegations of murder on another independent constitutional authority without any basis, which has ultimately dented both the institutions.”
