Mumbai: Chief Election Commissioner Navin Chawla today said the election schedule for the Assembly polls in Maharashtra will be announced any time after finalisation of the electoral rolls, which will be completed by August 22.


Chawla was talking to reporters at a press conference held at Sahyadri Guest house here. He was in the city along with EC S Y Qureshi, EC V S Sampath and Deputy Election Commissioner J P Prakash.


They held a series of meetings with the state and national level political parties, apart from the six Divisional Commissioners and the District Collectors of Mumbai, Thane and Pune.


State Electoral Officer Debashish Chakravarty, Director General of Police S S Virk were also present during the press conference.


Chawla said the parties gave some suggestions but nobody demanded postponement of the elections due to swine flu.


Clarifying that the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) in use were tamper-proof, the EC said the machines that were shown to be tampered by some politicians and independent groups were not the machines used by the Commission and added that when the Commission asked them to prove their claims about the machines, nobody came forward. ''They were either unwilling or unable to demonstrate that machine can be tampered,'' he informed.


Chawla said the Commission had received many complaints about 'silent support' by presiding officials to the Congress and NCP and pointed that the EC will take all measures to avoid such incidents.


He said the Commission will taken strict action against hidden advertisements, money power and the high-handed attitude of the police officials.


Asked whether there would be ban on use of funds for any calamity or to start a new scheme to tackle the drought-like situation, the EC clarified that there was no such ban.
