Senjuti Karmakar started this petition to the supreme court of india

More and more candidates are being threatened, bullied and physically assaulted in order to prevent them from filing nominations in the West Bengal Panchayat Elections, as well as in other elections. The Calcutta High Court directed the EC in WB to accept e-nominations to ensure that the democratic right of an individual to file a nomination is not violated. However, the State EC has decided to challenge this decision in the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court thus has the power to stop this violence by recognising the legality of e-nominations in this country. This will take us one step closer to free and fairer elections.
