Dr Subhash Chandra counter-attacks Congress, RK Anand; says allegations are frivolous

Media baron Dr Subhash Chandra, who was recently elected to the Rajya Sabha after his victory from Haryana, accused the Congress and R K Anand of lodging a “frivolous” complaint against him for allegedly changing the pen used to mark votes.

In a media statement, Dr Chandra said that the complaints against him are based on “whimsical assumptions without a shred of evidentiary backing”. The statement added that the Election Commission in Delhi had reviewed the proceedings post counting and after going through the same had given clearance to declare the results. The same is clearly reflected in the videos that were reviewed by the Election Commission. It is evidently clear from the interviews provided by various members of different parties regarding how the charges were traded between INLD and INC, right after the night of the election and the same allegations continued till June 12.

“On 13th June, a new theory was coined blaming me to have cheated by magically exchanging the pen provided by Election Commission to cast the vote. It is a matter to record that the entire election process was transparent and no one, during the vote counting process, could have been certain as to the fact that Congress votes could be rejected/declared invalid as there was no mark to identify as who had marked which ballot,” read the statement.

Dr Chandra further said that the fall of events and complaints followed after the election results are only aimed at maligning his reputation and goodwill as an elected candidate. Even after showcasing its transparency in holding the elections, the Election Commission is also targeted with complaints, which are only based on assumptions of complainant.

 “I would once again like to reiterate my position as an honest candidate whose aim is to simply work for the interest of Haryana,” he repeated.

The OOH sector is among the fastest growing, globally. Brands and marketers have realized its potential and impact and begun to craft medium-specific adverts. Self-regulation is not only necessary but also essential to growth of the sector.
