ECI Calls Trinamool’s Allegations ‘Insinuations & Averments’

New Delhi: The Election Commission of India (ECI) rejected West Bengal ruling party Trinamool Congress’ allegations in its representations to the state CEO regarding Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s injuries during poll campaign in Nandigram on Wednesday.

The poll panel has not taken over the law and order machinery in the name of conducting elections in the state, said the ECI.

According to ECI, it is rather “unfortunate” that the memorandum submitted by Trinamool leaders to the West Bengal CEO and then forwarded by the latter to the poll panel is “full of insinuations and averments, which in fact questions the very basis of creation and functioning of the election body”.

The poll body said while the “unfortunate incident (the alleged attack on Banerjee) needs to be inquired into with promptitude and dispatch”, it is “completely incorrect” to state that the EC has taken over law and order machinery in the name of conducting elections and appropriated the whole governance structure, reported news agency IANS.

“This virtually tantamounts to undermine the very foundation and fabric of the Constitution of India.

“It looks undignified to even respond to allegations of all this being done at behest of a particular party,” it said.

It was also insisted that the DGP was not removed summarily and without application of mind. “It was outcome of recommendation given by special observers Ajay Nayak and Vivek Dubey.”

The poll panel learnt about the incident from media on Wednesday, and a report was sought immediately from Chief Secretary and both special observers within 48 hours.

“Till such time reports are available, it is not possible to draw any empirical conclusion, let alone link it to DGP’s removal. Even ADG (Law and Order) was changed after considered application of mind by special observers,” ECI added.
