'Fake message being shared': Election Commission says no announcement yet on LS poll dates

| @indiablooms | 09 Mar 2024, 12:24 am

New Delhi/IBNS: The Election Commission Friday clarified that no polling or counting dates have been announced so far for Lok Sabha elections.

The statement comes amid a fake message being shared on WhatsApp regarding the election schedule.

The EC said that the body will announce the poll dates through a press conference.

"A fake message is being shared on WhatsApp regarding the schedule for #LokSabhaElections2024 #FactCheck: The message is #Fake. No dates have been announced so far by #ECI. The Election Schedule is announced by the Commission through a press conference. #VerifyBeforeYouAmplify," ECI said in a post on X.

Taking note of the various trends and cases of plummeting levels of political campaign discourse in recently-held elections, the commission in February this year issued an advisory to all political parties to maintain decorum and utmost restraint in public campaigning.
