power structures of these bahubalis and clean up the electoral process to a good extent The case concerns Mukhtar Ansari a BSP candidate from eastern Uttar Pradesh’s Mau constituency It argues whether Ansari a mafia-don turned politician should be let out of jail to canvass for the ongoing Assembly elections in the state File image of don-turned-politician Mukhtar Ansari IBNLive Ansari had pleaded for his release on custody parole from 15 February till 11 March (result date for the election) so that he could campaign ahead of the Mau polls on 4 March The additional sessions judge of Delhi’s Tees Hazari court had accepted his plea and granted his temporary release Justice Mukta Gupta of the Delhi High Court however reversed the lower court’s order after opposition from the Election Commission (EC) This raises a pertinent question:Can the Election Commission oppose a plea for parole Ansari is lodged in Lucknow Jail at present awaiting trial for his involvement in the murder of BJP leader Krishnanand Rai At the very outset his lawyers challenged the EC’s right to oppose his plea for temporary release contending that once the criminal law is set in motion and the matter has reached the courts a third party cannot interfere in the process It is only between the accused the prosecution and the court to decide on such cases they claimed Moreover they argued that under law the EC can act or intervene only after the polls are over– that is if Ansari or his supporters indulged in any violation of law the Commission can only decide to cancel and go for repolls Ansari’s lawyers stressed that ECcannot take preventive measures before the elections by opposing the parole plea and claimed that the EC’s apprehensions of violation of law and order were far-fetched In turn the EC contended that the Constitution vide Article 324 gives it a vast array of powers to conduct free and fair elections hence stated that it was within its rights to claim that Ansari should not be granted parole Moreover The EC backed up its argument by supplyingevidence to show that in 2012 and 2014 when Ansariwas released temporarily his supporters had indulged in wanton violence against the electorate Relying on previous landmark precedents set by the Supreme Court the high court held that Article 324 gave a wide range of plenary powers to the EC This included in extraordinary circumstances the power to even intervene in the criminal justice process Thus the ECdid have a right to demand that Ansari should not be granted a temporary release Taking a positive note of the evidence provided by the EC the court held that there was a fair probability of Ansari and his men again taking the law into their hands thus violating the sacrosanct principle of free and fair elections Armed guards intimidate the electorate The trial court order stated that Ansari should be guarded by eight armed policemen whenever he went on campaign rallies The EC contended that the presence of such armed guards would instill fear in the minds of voters and would thus amount to a hindrance in conducting elections which were free and fair Relying on clause 321 of the EC’s 2009 Instructions – which prohibited the display and use of arms during poll campaigning – the court struck down the trial judge’s direction of the presence of armed guarding holding that it would tantamount to threatening and intimidating the electorate Right to contest doesn’t include the right to canvass Citing precedents laid down by the Supreme Court Ansari’s lawyers contended that since the right to contest is a democratic right which cannot be taken away even if a candidate is in prison Ansari should not be deprived of the right to campaign Rejecting this argument the court held that the right to contest elections did not grant a vested right to campaign for the same Whether to suspend a convict’s sentence so that he could be granted the liberty to campaign for the polls is a matter solely within the discretion of the court and Ansari’s past track record and the present circumstances did not warrant the granting of such discretion the court held There’s no such thing as ‘custody parole’ According to the law parole and furlough are available only to those convicted and sentenced for a crime and the government and prison authorities have the sole prerogative to decide on such matters Since Ansari was not a convict as he was an undertrial prisoner he was not eligible for either furlough or parole the court held Justice Gupta was also critical of the trial judge because what he did in effect was to grant bail to Ansari when he did not have the jurisdiction to do so It was also a matter of record that Ansari had not payed for bail This aspect of the ruling is significant because many atime courts set prisoners free for a temporary period even if they are not eligible for either bail or parole And strongmen like Ansari take full advantage of the misnomer called custody parole in order to ply their trade of the politics of fear Criminalisation of politics has for long been the bane of the polity courts and the EC There are plenty of instances where the EClacks sufficient powers to keep criminals and goons in check and prevent them from violating the electoral process Seen in that light the high court’s ruling significantly strengthens the EC’s hands in keeping criminals and gangsters out of politics Balaghat: Twenty-three workers were charred to death and seven others were injured in a fire at a cracker factory in Kheri village in Balaghat
