Unlike Cong, BJP does'nt interfere in EC working: Dr Jitendra

Lashing out the allegations made by P. Chidambaram and other Congress leaders that the Modi Government was influencing the Election Commission (EC) to delay the dates of Gujarat Assembly elections, Union Minister and BJP Election Co-Incharge for Gujarat, Dr Jitendra Singh said here today  that, unlike the Congress, the BJP Government does not interfere in the working of Election Commission. 

He said, since the day the Modi Government came to power on 26th May 2014, all the constitutional bodies, including the Election Commission, have enjoyed absolute freedom and autonomy to function without any external interference from the government.

Dr Jitendra Singh, speaking on the sidelines of a function this morning, made a dig at the Congress leaders and said that what Chidambram and other Congress leaders are talking is from their own experience of nearly 50 years when the Congress Party established a new norm of using constitutional bodies, including Election Commission and CBI, to serve its political interests. 

He said, the credit goes to Prime Minister Modi for having established back the sanctity, propriety and constitutional status of Election Commission and other such bodies.

Earlier, speaking at a function to mark the release of a video film "Muntazar" highlighting the state of elder citizens in the country today, Dr Jitendra Singh said, instead of being pessimistic about the issue, the need of the hour is for a healthy synergism between the youth and the elders for a much harmonious and faster assent of India in the world arena.
