‘Media must report fully’: Indian SC on EC’s protest

The media cannot be stopped from reporting any court hearing and "must report fully" what happens in court, India's Supreme Court said yesterday as the Election Commission complained about being "castigated without any evidence" on political rallies during the campaign for state elections. "The media is powerful and communicating what happens in court. Not only our judgements, but raising of questions, answers and dialogues is a concern for citizens. Media not reporting observations is  far-fetched," the Supreme Court told the Election Commission. The Election Commission last week approached the Supreme Court against what it called "blatantly disparaging remarks" by the Madras High Court over holding polls amid the deadly second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic.
