New Delhi, May 18 (IANS) The Congress on Saturday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over Election Commissioner Ashok Lavasa’s letter to Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora over his dissent in the EC decisions in going unrecorded and asked whether it was “Election Commission or Election Omission”.

In a letter to the CEC, Election Commissioner Ashok Lavasa recused himself from the Full Commission meetings related to the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) after his “minority decisions” on the clean chit to Modi and BJP President Amit Shah on their respective speeches went unrecorded.

Insisting that erosion of institutional integrity was the hallmark of the Modi government, Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala tweeted: “Election Commission OR Election Omission! Another Dark Day for Democracy! Ashok Lavasa, Member CEC, who dissented on multiple occasions when the EC was busy giving clean chits to Modi-Shah duo, opts out of EC as the ECI even refuse to record dissent notes.”

He further said: “Erosion of institutional integrity is the hallmark of the Modi government! The SC judges going public, the RBI Governor resigning, the CBI Director getting removed, the CVC giving vacuous reports and now the divisions in the Election Commission! Will the EC save itself the embarrassment by recording Lavasa’s dissent notes.”
