EC seeks factual information from Congress leader Jairam Ramesh

NEW DELHI, JUNE 02, 2024: The Election Commission of India has sought factual information and details from Congress leader Jairam Ramesh for his public statement through a post on his social media handle alleging calls made by Union Home Minister Amit Shah to 150 DMs (district magistrates and Collectors) just days before scheduled counting of votes.

In a letter to Mr Jairam Ramesh, the EC had mentioned: “the process of counting of votes is a sacred duty cast upon every RO and such public statements by a senior, responsible and experienced leader tend to put an element of doubt and thus, deserves to be addressed in larger public interest. Although, no DM has reported any undue influence, EC had sought details and information from Jairam Ramesh of 150 DMs to whom Amit Shah has influenced, as alleged by Mr Ramesh  and which he believes to be true, and had thus made these allegations”.  The EC has sought his response by June 2, 2024 evening for further necessary action.
