Former Prez Pranab Mukherjee lauds EC; says LS polls conducted perfectly

Former president Pranab Mukherjee has lauded the role of the Election Commission saying the 2019 Lok Sabha polls were conducted perfectly.

Speaking at a book launch event in New Delhi yesterday, he said that right from the first election commissioner Sukumar Sen to the present election commissioners, the institution is working very well. Mr Mukherjee said all the three commissioners are appointed by the executive and they are doing their job well.

His remarks come a day after Congress president Rahul Gandhi alleged that the Election Commission’s capitulation before Prime Minister Narendra Modi is obvious and the poll watchdog is not feared and respected anymore.

The EC has been criticised by the opposition parties for being allegedly biased towards the BJP.
