'Media Must Report Fully': Supreme Court On Election Commission's Protest

The Election Commission last week approached the Supreme Court.



New Delhi:

The media cannot be stopped from reporting any court hearing, the Supreme Court said today as the Election Commission complained about being “castigated without any evidence” on political rallies during the campaign for state elections.

“The media is powerful and communicating what happens in court. Not only our judgements, but raising of questions, answers and dialogues is a concern for citizens. Media not reporting observations is far-fetched,” the Supreme Court told the Election Commission.

The Election Commission last week approached 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.
