A research paper by a professor at Ashoka University has sparked a political row - the paper suggests electoral manipulation in the Indian 2019 general elections, alleging a mismatch in Election Commission data and BJP winning a disproportionately high number of close contests, especially in the BJP-incumbent states. The BJP as well as some analysts have slammed the professor citing insufficient data, while Ashoka University has distanced itself from the report - but on Left, Right and Centre, we ask - is there any merit to Professor Sabyasachi Das' argument? Or is it unfair to run down the biggest democratic elections in the world?
