Will be charged with murder; Madras High Court to Election Commission

The Madras High Court has strongly criticized the Election Commission for being responsible for the second wave of Kovid in the country. Assembly elections in four states and Union Territories were allowed to hold rallies without Kovid restrictions. No action was taken against the rally. A bench of Chief Justice Sanjeeb Banerjee and Justice Senthilkumar Ramamurthy observed that the commission should be charged with murder.

Kovid repeatedly told the commission that the situation should not get worse because of the election, but it did not work. Campaigns and rallies were held without following social norms and other norms. The court was hearing a petition filed by Transport Minister and Karur constituency candidate MR Vijayabhaskar seeking confirmation of Kovid norms on counting day. Niranjan Rajagopalan, counsel for the commission, said the standards would be ensured on counting day. The court also asked whether the commission was on an alien planet during the rallies.

It is unfortunate that the constitutional institution has to be reminded that public health is important. The court said it was a case of survival and everything else was later. The outline for compliance with the Kovid norms at the counting center should be submitted to the court within 30 days. Otherwise, the court observed, the vote count for May 2 would have to be postponed to June or July.

The center cannot escape
The Delhi High Court has ruled that the Central Government and the Delhi Government cannot be exempted from ensuring the availability of oxygen. Solicitor General Thushar Mehta said the crisis was not due to non-distribution by the Center but to the state and not to the Center.

Bombay High Court files case voluntarily
The Aurangabad Bench of the Bombay High Court voluntarily registered a criminal public interest litigation in connection with the Kovid crisis in Marathwada. The move comes amid media reports of problems with the culture of Kovid patients, the scarcity of Rendezvous and Oxygen, and the black market.

SS Bora was appointed as amicus curiae to examine whether the suggestion that the Supreme Court would consider cases related to Kovid was applicable in this petition.
