Election Commissioners Navin Chawla and Qureshi have threatened to postpone the Gujarat election process and bring President's Rule in the state if the Bharatiya Janata Party fans communal violence in Gujarat through its new CD, which is to be released in the birth place of Sardar Patel.
If this is telecast, there shall be a possiblity of the entire election process being postponed. If that is done, the Centre can easily clamp President Rule.
Deputy election commissioners have been put on alert in New Delhi to monitor Gujarat.
