Former President Pranab Mukherjee complimented the Election Commission of India on Monday over its perfect handling of the Lok Sabha polls, taking a starkly divergent stand on the matter from that of the Congress and other opposition parties. “Democracy succeeded due to perfect conduct of polls by the EC,” he said. Pranab stated government institutions are serving well in this country. Meanwhile, non-NDA parties are meeting in Delhi on Tuesday to discuss unilateral decisions of the EC. Later, they will meet the CEC over VVPAT verification.
