Justice (Retd.) Nariman Slams Attempts to Make EC 'Partial'
Former Supreme Court Justice Rohinton F. Nariman strongly criticised the legislative attempts aimed at making the Election Commission (EC) entirely subservient to the government. The bill approved in the Rajya Sabha would transform the Election Commission into a fully government committee, which has sparked widespread backlash in civil society. Justice Nariman, speaking on Friday, went as far as stating that if this law passes, the Supreme Court should revoke it to safeguard both the Election Commission and democracy.
