EC’s ‘capitulation’ before PM and his gang obvious: Rahul

NEW DELHI: As polling for the Lok Sabha election ended, Congress president Rahul Gandhi Sunday hit out at the Election Commission, saying its “capitulation” before Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his gang is obvious.

He trained his guns on the poll body, saying it is no longer “feared and respected”, as he listed a host of examples in this regard, including Modi’s visit to Kedarnath in Uttarakhand.

“From Electoral Bonds and EVMs to manipulating the election schedule, NaMo TV, ‘Modi’s Army’ and now the drama in Kedarnath; the Election Commission’s capitulation before Mr Modi and his gang is obvious to all Indians,” Gandhi tweeted.

“The EC used to be feared and respected. Not anymore,” he wrote. (AGENCIES)
