Rahul Gandhi accuses EC of bias and threatens them with ‘consequences’, hours after the same EC gave him clean chit for a lie

Interestingly, Rahul Gandhi, only a few hours later, threatening EC officials after he got a clean chit for a blatant lie, considering Amit Shah is not a murder accused.

Rahul Gandhi, in a media interaction today, threatened Election Commission officials with “consequences” in the future for being biased. Answering a question posed by the Media, Rahul Gandhi said that the election commission has cowered to the pressures put by the Narendra Modi government and have become biased against the opposition.

Rahul Gandhi said that when it comes to the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Election Commission toes the straight line, but when it comes to the opposition, the Election Commission becomes bias.

He then said that he understands that EC has too succumbed to the pressure that is exerted by the Modi government, just like the Supreme Court, Planning Commission, Reserve Bank of India etc have. Every institution he said is being corroded by the Modi government.

He then said that the Election Commission has a responsibility and they need to commit to that responsibility to discharge their duties properly.

Continuing to attack the EC and the Modi government, Rahul Gandhi said that these people will have ‘consequences in the future’ and that he ‘won’t allow Indian institutions to be crushed’. He also said that “anyone who colludes with the Modi government is committing a crime”. 

In what can be seen as a clear threat to Election Commission for their perceived bias against the Congress party and the opposition parties at large, Rahul Gandhi has, while the elections are in progress, threatened EC officials. This could be viewed as a serious offence and breach of MCC.

Interestingly, just a few days ago, the Election Commission gave a clean chit to Rahul Gandhi for a blatant lie that Rahul had propagated during his election rally.

Rahul Gandhi had, in one of his rallies asserted that Amit Shah is a murder accused. In view of that comment, Gujarat Court had ordered an inquiry into Rahul Gandhi and his blatantly fallacious comment.

The Election Commission had yesterday given a clean chit to Rahul Gandhi for his comment calling Amit Shah a murder accused. In its statement, EC had said, “complaint was examined in detail and after examination of the complete transcript of speech sent by the district electoral officer of Jabalpur, the Commission is of the considered view that no violation of the model code of conduct is made out.” Gandhi made the remark during an election rally in Sihora district of Madhya Pradesh on April 23.

In his rally, Rahul Gandhi had said, “Murder accused BJP chief Amit Shah. Wah, kya shaan hai!”.

In his election affidavit, Amit Shah has revealed that there are four cases pending against him. They are:

1.  Registered in West Bengal over an inflammatory speech during the municipality polls this year.

2. Pending before a metropolitan magistrate in Kolkata, was a defamation suit.

3. Registered in Muzaffarpur in Bihar in 2017, was regarding a YouTube video showing Shah hoisting the national flag while wearing shoes.

4. Registered in Begusarai in Bihar in 2015 for making some remarks against Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Lalu Prasad Yadav, the affidavit said.

Interestingly, Rahul Gandhi, only a few hours later, threatening EC officials after he got a clean chit for a blatant lie, considering Amit Shah is not a murder accused.
