Allahabad High Court on Wednesday dismissed the petition seeking postponement of U.P. panchayat Election 2021 in view of the outbreak of Covid-19 infection in the state.

This order has been given by a division bench of Chief Justice Govind Mathur and Justice SS Shamsheri on a PIL in the matter of postponement of U.P the Panchayat Election 2021.

As per the petitioner, looking at the massive surge in Covid-19 infection in different parts of the state, it would be against the Public Interest to hold Panchayat Elections in rural areas.

The petitioner said that the elections would be causing enormous injury to the health of public at large and that would be in contravention to Article 21 of the Constitution of India.

“We do not find any merit in the argument advanced. The state while notifying elections in panchayat raj institutions has already declared a protocol to be adhered to during the election campaign of the elections”, the court said.

The court has also issued certain directions in Public Interest Litigation for the state government to follow during the entire process of elections. All necessary care as such shall be taken by the state to prevent the spread of infection during the course of panchayat raj elections.

Therefore the court dismissed the petition.
