In an unprecedented move, the Election Commission (EC), on Friday, countermanded the Rajya Sabha polls in Jharkhand. The strict action by the poll panel, also the first ever, came amidst reports of "horse-trading" and the seizure of cash worth over Rs. 2 crore from a car belonging to a candidate's relative. Incidentally, the cancellation of the polls happened on the same day as elections that were held in the state for the two seats to the Rajya Sabha.
