Election Duty and seriously ill employees
There is a newly formed district in UP called Kanshi Ramnagar. Kanshiram nagar comes under Etah Lok Sabha constituency. Etah will go for polling on 7th May. Undoubtedly, for election duties sarkari babus cook up all kinds of excuses to skip poll duty. But question arises here is that can Election Commission of India deploy any seriously ill old age person for election duty? If the the patient has all relevant documents including all prescriptions and diagnosis written by specialist doctors.There are few seriously ill persons in Kanshi Ramnagar deployed for election duty. Even they are showing the relevant documents, as news are coming that many govt employees are pretending to be 'ill' to skip election duties. But CDO and other officers of Kanshiram Nagar are very very much insensitive towards genuinely ill employees. Election Commission should take a serious note of it and the people with serious medical problems and old age employees should be allowed to skip poll duty.
