Election commission had been showing quite leniency till few days ago against most of the politicians of different parties. Most of the educated people of this country were thinking that election commission had become a toothless tiger. Even several articles had been published on several portals regarding the inefficient way of working of election commission. Just because of this lenient way of working of election commission a number of the leaders from different parties were involved in a lot of wrong and hateful speeches against different leaders and communities. Now election commission has taken a very strong decision against two leaders of two different parties for their hate speech.
Election commission of India very rightly banned Azam Khan and Amit Shah from holding any public meeting and from participating of any public meetings & road shows. Commission also directed state machinery to lodge an FIR against both the leaders and to start criminal case for vitiating the atmosphere of country.
The commission using its power under Article 324 of the constitution of India and all other powers said very categorically that FIRs should be immediately filed and other criminal proceedings initiated against these two leaders. Though election commission had taken strong action against these two leaders of this country but it should have banned all these leaders including Imran Masood and Vasudhara Raje from public life. There should not be any soft corner for such type of politicians irrespective of their affiliations. But problem is that if I am BJP supporter then action against Amit Shah is wrong whereas for the supporters of SP action against Azam Khan is wrong. If people think of really about Indian then they should oppose such politicians rather than trying to protect and support just because of their affiliations. A few days ago even Mr. Rajnath Singh of BJP tried to support Amit Shah by saying that it should not be taken out of context. But the actions by Commission against these two leaders clearly proves that these two leaders were involved in vitiating the atmosphere of country.
