Election Commission Biased, Says Arvind Kejriwal On Bengal Campaign Ban
By Ndtv 17-May-2019
Accusing the Election Commission (EC) of being "biased", Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal asked why the poll panel ordered campaigning be stopped in West Bengal at 10pm on Thursday after Prime Minister Narendra Modi's rallies in the state.
The poll panel on Wednesday invoked Article 324 of the Constitution to end campaigning in nine West Bengal constituencies at 10pm on Thursday, a day before its scheduled deadline, following violence between BJP and TMC workers in Kolkata on Tuesday.
Polling for the nine Lok Sabha seats in West Bengal will be held on May 19.
During his election campaign at Moga in Punjab, AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal said he strongly condemns the "attitude" of the EC.
"We strongly condemn the attitude of the Election Commission. Why was the campaign ordered to be stopped after Modiji's rallies. We have never seen this biased EC in the history of the country," the AAP national convener said.
Expressing his support for West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, he hoped that the people of the state "will teach PM Modi a lesson in the polls".
