SUB : WEAKEST ELECTION EVER AND WEAKEST COMMISSION .
It is election commissioner HS Brahma's belated bizarre attempt to save his own skin inspite of the fact that he was himself party to all the decisions of commission . He is guilty along with the other two election commissioners of dereliction of duty . Could such grave lapses have been pardoned in the case of a lower functionary of Govt ? Any other lower GOVT employee would have been sacked by now or at least booked and charge sheeted for lapses of this magnitude . Founding fathers of constitution guaranteed immunity along with vast powers to act timely to Election Commissioners with the premise that they will act free and fair . But they are proving like an arrogant clerks in their functioning . They forget that they are expected to deliver quality service to the country of which political parties are an important arm . Sadly enough , while they are enjoying most sought after perks like LAL BATTI , plush bungalows , security guards , best health care , social status , enviable high salaries and post retirement lucrative benefits , they refuse to deliver quality job . This is weakest election ever inspite of being the longest ever . Every body,s hope that this much long spell will be made use of by election commission to make one of the memorable elections for delivery has been bellied . Following factors need be taken note of :-
1. Commission ordered large number of paramilitary forces . The avowed purpose was to deploy them for polling duty . Instead , state Govts did not place them on polling booths but kept them for their other policing duties . State Govts. deployed the state police at polling booths to manipulate/rig the polling . Election commission kept silent .
2. FIR lodged against PM candidate without verifying the facts which later proved wrong . look commission's arrogance . It did not apologise to the candidate .
3. In other cases Commission did not act even on in-camera violations because person is holding VP post in CEC appointee party .
4. In Varanasi , Commission refused permission to candidate himself to canvas for vote and put forth his views on various issues on which he intends to fight election . If candidate is not allowed to reach electorate , what sort of election is this . Not heard of anywhere in the world hitherto-fore . It will find place in Guinness book of world records . As flimsy an excuse as security threat to candidate talking to closed door audience of 150 persons of repute do not go down well with the voters of VARANASI . Commission has taken the voters of VARNASI for granted and usurped their legitimate right to hear the poll candidate . Commission sighting security threat to election rally even while 50,000 security personals are at its disposal in Varanasi itself for one constituency . What a colossal waste of public money by three members of the commission .In total contrast ,Congress VP who is not a candidate is allowed road show in the city.
5 . Commission disregarding and not responding to urgent letters from VP of a party who also happens to be Leader of Opposition in Parliament .
HS Brahma's post happening belated media interaction to say sorry is nothing but an after thought . How can he disown his role in three member commission while being part of all decisions . Had he been sincere , he should have put his foot down in the commission meetings . Plausible reason for after thought is fear of being overlooked for CEC as and when that happens .
