IMPHAL: The Election Commission of India (ECI) has stated that a section of the media has wrongly interpreted the statement made by CEC Sh Sunil Arora in his inaugural address at the International Webinar held in New Delhi on September 21, 2020.

In a press release of ECI signed by undersecretary Pawan Diwan it was stated that the ECI press release issued at 4:30 PM on 9 September, 2020 specifically read “CEC mentioned that the Commission would take a decision within the next two to three days, on visiting Bihar.”

The ECI stated that all media organisations who have based their stories quoting copy of ANI are requested to take note of official press release of ECI and correct the news items to read only about the ECI’s visit to be scheduled to the State of Bihar in near future.

It also mentioned that the Commission’s schedule of visit to the State of Bihar has no correlation with announcement of dates of Bihar Elections, as stated/alluded by the ANI copy, he added.
