In this episode of Virtuosity, Pavan Varma, national General Secretary of the JD-U - which is a member of the ruling National Democratic Alliance, questions the Election Commission's decision not to announce the election dates for Gujarat. Varma clarifies that his tweet was in nature of a query because there was perception that the EC's impartiality is perceived even to be less than complete which he believed was deleterious for the democracy. He wonders if the EC has announces dates for Himachal Pradesh polls, why it hasn't done so for Gujarat.
