Election commission’s exam to be held on Tuesday, prove that democracy is strong in the country – Supriyo Bhattacharya

Ranchi: The voting process in the Lok Sabha elections 2024 has ended.

Counting of votes will take place on June 4.

On the eve of counting of votes, Supriyo Bhattacharya, General Secretary of Jharkhand Mukti Morcha said, on one hand claimed lead in 10 out of 14 Lok Sabha seats of Jharkhand and on the other hand raised serious questions on the role and impartiality of the Central Election Commission.

Supriyo Bhattacharya said that Tuesday is the test of the Election Commission in the sense of how it maintains its impartiality and credibility because only this will prove that democracy is still strong in the country and is an example for the whole world.

Supriyo Bhattacharya has alleged that the Chief Election Commissioner has insulted the decency of speech in the press conference held before the counting of votes.

He alleged that the Election Commission had closed its ears and eyes during the entire election campaign.

Supriyo Bhattacharya said that while announcing the dates of Lok Sabha elections, the Chief Election Commissioner had said many good things.

The Election Commission closed the complaints received against the ruling party in its drawer.

The class and political specific thinking and action plan were implemented.

However, it is fortunate that even in the scorching heat, 65-66 percent people exercised their franchise.

Supriyo Bhattacharya said that the voting figures are also doubtful because the actual figures were released quite late.

Counting is on Tuesday and the final figures of the 7th phase of voting have not been revealed yet.

He said that trust and credibility have great importance in democracy.

Justice is considered complete only when it is not only in words but we also see it coming to fruition on the ground.

JMM’s Central General Secretary said that counting is on Tuesday.

This noble work should be carried out without any hindrance or in favour of any particular party.

This time many sectors were added through postal ballots.

Voting through postal ballot was arranged for media persons, elderly, disabled and people in the service sector.

We want that the tallying and counting of postal ballot votes should be done in a transparent manner.

There is no need to save it for later.

There should be no power cut at the time of counting.

Arrangements for generators should be made right from the beginning of counting.

He said that in case of power cut, EVMs will have to be restarted due to which there will be a possibility of malfunction.

He said that after every election, programming of EVMs is done afresh, hence the possibility of malfunction cannot be ruled out.
