The Supreme Court has allowed the candidates to conduct a physical rally 7 days before the Madhya Pradesh by-election. Earlier, the Gwalior Bench of Madhya Pradesh High Court had ordered a virtual rally only, prohibiting physical rally. The Supreme Court gave a stay on the order of the High Court on Monday. This was appealed by the Election Commission.

The Election Commission had said that by-elections are to be held on November 3. Shortly before this, the High Court order has made the election process helpless. However, the Supreme Court also pulled up the Election Commission for not taking timely steps to implement the Corona Guidelines at election rallies.

What did the High Court order?
The court said that all campaigning related to the elections should be virtual. If virtual mode is not possible, physical propagation will be done with the permission of DM. The DM will also have to get approval from the Election Commission first and the candidate contesting the election has to deposit so much money that masks and sanitizers can be purchased for the people who are attending the rally.
