J.S. Saharia, Maharashtra’s election commissioner, said the EC would keep an eye out for chartered planes and helicopters that could be used to transport cash and liquor into the state before the municipal elections. But should that apply to Saharia himself? That’s what the people of Maharashtra were asking after his whirlwind trips across the state. Saharia might say there is no other way he could do his duty, but why then did he make an unscheduled stop in Pandharpur, and pay a visit to the Vitthal temple? Perhaps, like frequent travellers, he knows how to mix business with pleasure.
