Decrying the Election Commission's (EC) decision to permit door-to-door campaign at midnight, the Communist Party of India (Marxist) today urged the EC to repeal its decision and ensure free and fair elections.

Talking to reporters, here CPM State Secretary G Ramakrishnan said the 'EC decision would pave the way for distributing money to the voters.'

When the Chief Electoral Officer of Tamilnadu Praveen Kumar himself admitted that checking distribution of money to the voters posed a major challenge for the election commission, why he had took such a decision

UNIlaterally, despite there was no specific demand from the political parties for a door-to-door campaign at night, he asked.
