The Election Commission submitted its clarification in the Supreme Court on Monday against the Madras High Court’s comments.
- Commission said – Stop rallies, disaster management work, High Court’s ‘killer’ comment and its media reporting wrong
- Supreme Court said- Media cannot stop reporting, comments will be part of judicial process, balanced orders
The Election Commission on Monday presented its clarification in the Supreme Court against the Madras High Court’s comments on the rapid pace of transition in electoral states. The Madras High Court bench held the Election Commission responsible for the second wave of Corona in the country, saying that a murder case should be filed against the Commission officials.
During the hearing on the petition filed against these remarks in the Supreme Court, the counsel for the Election Commission said that we get the election done, the government does not take it in its hands. If the Prime Minister is holding a rally of 2 lakh people in a far-flung area, then the Commission cannot fire the mob.
It is the job of the Disaster Management Department to look into it. The media should also be prevented from reporting such comments. On this, a bench of Justice DY Chandrachud and Justice MR Shah of the Supreme Court said that the media cannot be stopped from reporting oral comments of judges. Judges’ comments are part of the judicial process.
They are as important as a formal court order. The court, while advising the commission, said that you take the comments made by the High Court in the same way as the bitter medicines of the doctor are taken. The Supreme Court has reserved its decision on the petition of the Election Commission.
However, following strict counting by the Madras High Court, the Election Commission banned the victory processions after the counting of votes. After the results on Sunday, the Election Commission said that action should be taken against the police officers who failed to stop them.
Judges do not come home thinking about what to say in court today
Election Commission counsel Rakesh Dwivedi said the murder charge is improper. The judge should write in his judgment what the comment means? Justice Chandrachud said that we understand your point. But we do not want to discourage high court judges. It is not that the judges come home thinking about what to say. We respect the Election Commission as a constitutional body.
Public Question: Bullets were not to be fired on the crowd, rallies were to be banned completely, whose job is this?
