Congress raises questions on time
At the same time, Congress has questioned the reshuffle at the time of announcement of election dates. Congress’s media in-charge Randeep Singh Surjewala has tweeted questions about the independence of the Election Commission. He wrote in his tweet that the Election Commission had called a press conference at 12.30 pm for the election of five states. There is a rally of PM Modi at 1 PM at Ajmer in Rajasthan. The Election Commission suddenly changed the time and the press conference held at 3 o’clock. Election Commission’s Freedom?
Election Commission also gave a clean sweep on changing time of press conference. OP Rawat calls the Telangana election a reason for it. He also said that political parties find politics in everything, we have nothing to say on this.
Controversy took place on Karnataka elections
The Election Commission announced dates for the Karnataka assembly elections on March 27 this year. But dates before the Election Commission had become public. When the election commissioner OP Rawat did not announce the dates in the press conference, BJP’s IT cell in charge Amit Malviya had written it on the tweet before date. There was a big controversy about which.
Let us state that in big states like Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, the Bharatiya Janata Party is the government, whereas Congress in Mizoram is in power. Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh are mainly contesting between the Congress and the BJP. In view of the forthcoming elections, both the parties are fiercely campaigning. At the same time, K Chandrasekhar Rao of Telangana was the government of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi, but he had recently decided to dissolve the assembly by joining the governor.
