Film on Indian polls biased: CPI-M

Agartala, Dec 8 (IANS) The CPI-M Saturday told the Election Commission that the "Indian Election: A Mammoth Democratic Exercise" documentary made by the external affairs ministry is biased, partial and might affect religious sentiments in the country.

Ruling Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) Tripura state secretary Bijon Dhar in a letter to the Election Commission said: "The film would give political advantage to the Congress and BJP ahead of the ensuing assembly elections in (Tripura) February next year."

Briefing reporters, CPI-M spokesman Gautam Das said that the party has doubt whether the external affairs ministry has any business to glorify the Indian democracy inside the country.

"Instead of showing plurality, which is the basic electoral system of our country, it looks as if, except Congress and the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party), no other party exists in India," said the letter, which was released to the media.

Demanding not to allow the screening of the film before the assembly polls in Tripura, the letter said that while introducing the EVM (Electronic Voting Machine), election symbols of major national political parties were exhibited except that of CPI-M and CPI (Communist Party of India).

Gautam Das said that since India, a multi-religious country strongly stands for secularism, depicting scenes of religious practises of only one or two communities may hurt the sentiments of other groups, who have not found space.
