EC denies leak of Karnataka Assembly elections poll date



Election Commission has said, there was no leak of the poll date of Karnataka Assembly elections. After going through a detailed enquiry report submitted by a poll panel committee, the Commission yesterday said, it was not a leak but merely a speculation.

However, the Commission said, the presentation of the news item by some TV channels just as it was making its own announcement was avoidable and they could have acted in a more responsible matter. It also said political parties should have avoided from tweeting at the crucial juncture when the Commission was announcing poll dates.

Last month, the Commission had constituted a committee of senior officers to investigate the matter related to a tweet by BJP IT Cell Head, a Karnataka Congress leader and others tweets regarding Karnataka assembly elections schedule allegedly before the announcement of poll schedule by the Commission.
