The given case study highlights the malpractices being resorted to ,to influence election results ,sway voters threatening the fairness of elections which are hallmark of our democracy .
Options In such situations –
1.Let the vehicle go ( reflecting unethicality ,non accountability and lack of moral values )
2.Tell the politician that I can’t do anything without my seniors permission ( reflecting timidity and gullibility )
3.But, I will take an immediate action to Siege the vehicle and take driver in custody asking questions and proper investigation about money and involvement of others . I will further complain to the state election commission so as to check in the matter further and hold the election as void if needed . I will file an FIR against the politician .Once the seniors are available ,I will inform them of the matter and the action I have taken .
Also, I will voice my concern to them about the politician involvement and his request to me ,to let it go .So,he should be punished for trying to manouver an officer on election duty and adopting such practices , by being jailed and disqualified to contest elections .
Further. I will check that why the vehicle wasn’t intercepted by any other officer from police to other authorities because in that case it will show unethicality , non accountability ,lack of honesty and integrity among them which is matter of grave concern for the administration because as is said “A chain is as strong as its weakest link ”
It is the duty of Election commission to conduct free and fair elections so that democracy can prevail .But,such events and politicians need to be identified and barred so as to preserve the fairness of electoral mandate .
