The Election Commission can be assembly political events from Bihar this afternoon through video conferencing.
The growth follows after a number of events from the state, in a joint letter to the ballot physique, underlined the priority among the many voters and the events that the Bihar “poll exercise does not become a super spreader event”. They highlighted that the coronavirus instances within the state noticed an “alarming exponential surge”.
“It is safe to assume that there are many more infected people who are either asymptomatic or have not yet been tested in the state, making their public movement a risk for others around them. It is also projected that infections would cross a million in Bihar by the tentative election schedules in October-November,” the events argued within the letter and urged upon the EC to evaluate if polls could be held in such a state of affairs.
