    Priyanka Gandhi slams UP Govt for conducting panchayat elections

    Priyanka Gandhi has slammed the Uttar Pradesh government for conducting panchayat elections amid the raging COVID-19 pandemic. She said what is happening in the state is nothing less than a "crime against humanity" and the state election commission (SEC) is "playing along". Gandhi claimed that 700 teachers, including one who was pregnant and forced to attend poll duty, have died in the state. "These elections have been conducted in almost 60,000 gram sabhas of UP without any thought of the catastrophic onslaught of the second wave," Priyanka Gandhi said.

    The Supreme Court yesterday refused to stay the counting process amid raging Covid-19. The State Election Commission (SEC) has said that the candidates and their agents will be allowed to enter the counting centres only if they have tested negative for virus in the 48 hours prior to the commencement of the counting process or taken both doses of the vaccine. A bench of justices AM Khanwilkar and Hrishikesh Roy passed the order in a special hearing on notifications and assurances of the SEC that the Covid protocols will be followed at all the 829 counting centres.
