Electoral Commission officials are solely responsible for the second wave of COVID-19 – Madras HC
The Madras High Court pointed to the liability and negligence of Electoral Commission officials for the surge in the second wave of COVID-19. The bank noted that the Indian electoral commission should not have allowed political rallies during the pandemic.
The bank, led by the Madras HC Chief Justice, shifted responsibility for the second wave of COVID-19 to electoral commission officials.
The chief judge went on to say that the officers’ liability was so high that they should be charged with murder.
The bank stated that the electoral commission did not enforce COVID-appropriate behavior. The rallies were not monitored. whether or not citizens wore masks, whether or not disinfectants were used; and social distancing was or was not maintained.
The bank found that despite a court order, none of the COVID protocols had been followed.
The bank warned officials to stop the vote count scheduled for May 2. The bank instructed officials to provide the court with a blueprint of the COVID log that they would follow on the day of the census.
The bank also noted that public health is a priority and that the constitutional authorities failed to recognize it. The bank stressed that a citizen can only enjoy the rights guaranteed by his representative if he survives.
The bank made it clear that survival and protection are paramount than anything else.
The bank instructed officials to place the blueprint by April 30th.
