Election India 2009: Charges against Mulayam Singh Yadav

As the election days draw nearer, you find more and more candidates brazenly violate the moral code of conduct laid down by the Election Commission. The most recent example is Mulayam singh Yadav, the Samajbadi Party supremo. He has threatened the lady district magistrate and state election officer-in-charge with dire consequences in an open meeting. The EC has filed an FIR against the leader, and also slaps a criminal charge against him.

Now, Yadav is a senior leader, and some years ago was the defence minister at the centre. Does he really care about any law anyway? And do you think the Election commission has the clout to take any action against him? On the "Holi" day, Mulayam freely distributed hundred rupee notes to his potential voters and got away with it without even a warning by the commission.

Rest assured the EC would more or less behave the same way in this case too. This is indian democracy at the Election Commission level!
