Poll Panel vs Media: EC issues clarification; says no bar on reportage

The Election Commission has now come out and issued a clarification in regards to its previous stand on media reporting. The Election Commission earlier approached the Madras High Court and then the Supreme Court, seeking a bar on media reporting on oral observations made by the court. The EC has now stated that its ally with media is a natural one and the decision is unanimous that they do not want any kind of bar on media reporting. Times Now's Nikunj Garg reports on this and highlights how the EC has been accused of favouritism but the media should not be dragged into it.
