Punjab Elections 2017: Election Commission 'spineless', surrendered before PM Modi, says Arvind Kejriwal

Kejriwal's remarks came in response to reports of people allegedly visiting polling booths with party symbols and other campaigning material.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on February 4 launched an attack on Election Commission of India, calling it ‘spineless’ and alleged that the body has “completely surrendered” before Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

“Election Commission has completely surrendered before Modiji, just like the CBI and the RBI,” Kejriwal tweeted.

Kejriwal’s remarks came in response to reports of people allegedly visiting polling booths with party symbols and other campaigning material, and also campaigning on social media and TV on polling day.

“This is a completely shameless and spineless Election Commission.”

Meanwhile, over 50 per cent of Punjab’s 1.98 crore voters have exercised their franchise till 3 p.m. on Saturday for the 117 assembly seats in the state, election officials said.

Fatehgarh Sahib, Sangrur and Nawanshehr districts led in the voting percentage with over 56 per cent votes polled till 3 p.m

Earlier, the ongoing voting at different polling stations in Punjab was disrupted or delayed for periods ranging from five minutes to over an hour on Saturday due to technical snags in electronic voting machines (EVMs).
