COULD THE ELECTION COMMISSION HAVE POSTPONED THE ELECTION IN 5 STATES AMIDST THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC. ?

These are some unprecedented times, that we are living in. The World has been sadly gripped and shattered  by  the deadly Corona Virus, which has taken away the lives of millions of people. Unfortunately, the Republic of India ranks 2nd among the worst hit countries by the Covid-19 Pandemic, only after the USA. In terms of daily cases, we rank the first. However, the question which arises at the moment is, could this current situation have been avoided ? Could the burning pyres that we see everyday on various news channels be non-existent at all ? There are many could have beens and should have beens in this situation, but the crux of the matter is that we as people failed this great nation by being absolutely careless, when we were actually supposed to be on our toes.

The Election Commission is a constitutional Authority, established Under Article 324 of the Constitution, however the way it is functioning at the moment, surely does not seem like it is a constitutional body, on the contrary, it seems as if it is completely deriving its power from the current Central Government and not the Constitution of India. Given the current situation, the EC had the power to suspend the elections in 5 states namely West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Assam etc. However, it did not, and as a consequence, all the involved political parties including the BJP whose government is in power, kept organising rallies across these states, thereby attracting thousands of people. If we carefully examine the videos of such rallies, we may notice that there is absolute disregard to Covid protocols with such large public gatherings and no use of face masks. The result ? We have it in front of us, at the moment India is getting hit with more than 300,000 cases per day, a number which is difficult to comprehend because we did not see such severe situation even in the last year. The blame cannot be pinned on the EC though, because it has been only acting as per the directions of the Central Government. Rather than seeing the plight and misery of the suffering people, the current government only saw its victory in West Bengal, this kind of fanaticism from their side has led to a complete catastrophic failure in the Health Care system at the moment, and the prevailing situation has now forced the hands of the Highest Judicial authority i.e. the Supreme Court to declare a National health Emergency, the provision for which is not even there in the Constitution, but the same is being demanded by the prevailing circumstances.

The only thing one can do at the moment is stay indoors, and try to break the chain of this deadly infection. It is said that hope can keep us all alive, but at the moment this great nation cannot suffice on big mouths giving false hopes, it needs more oxygen cylinders, ventilators, Covid Wards, Hospital Beds, basically a far more better health Infrastructure to get through this, otherwise we will become another example like Italy, but at a much larger scale.
