Congress to move SC against Election Commission's decision, know what's the matter?

Imphal: The Congress party has decided to challenge the Election Commission's decision on Manipur elections in the Supreme Court. Congress leader Jairam Ramesh said that before the Manipur assembly elections, crores of rupees were given by the state government to "banned extremist organisations" which the Election Commission (EC) did not consider as a violation of the model code of conduct. The party will move the apex court on the matter.

Senior Congress observer for Manipur, Ramesh, tweeted, "The Election Commission has not surprisingly termed the payment made by the Manipur government to banned extremist organisations on February 1 and March 1 as a surprise violation of the code of conduct. I am filing a petition in the Supreme Court.''

Congress leader Jairam Ramesh has claimed that the payment has been made at the time of elections after a long gap and it has affected the elections to 11 assembly seats in the state. The Congress delegation had complained to the Election Commission on Friday about the issue and some other matters. The delegation also included senior Congress leaders Jairam Ramesh and Salman Khurshid.
