Rebel Janata Dal-United MP Sharad Yadav on Saturday voiced concern over the Election Commission's decision to postpone announcement of the Gujarat poll date, saying it was "not a good thing" and would raise questions on the credibility of the poll panel.
Speaking to reporters here, the senior leader also hit out at the BJP for maintaining different standards for itself and opposition leaders over the controversy surrounding BJP President Amit Shah's son Jay.
Yadav said that "democracy is the driving force of our Constitution.
And the Election Commission till date has maintained its credibility."
He said that earlier the Election Commission members would even in adverse circumstances maintain the neutrality of the poll panel and "act as an honest referral".
On the controversy over the massive spike in the turnover of Jay Shah's company after the NDA came to power in 2014, Yadav said: "Jay Shah is a Shah-zada, and we should speak less about them. People here are fond of Shah-zadas. They (BJP) have different standards and laws for the opposition, which are not implemented on their own party members."
