Rawat said the poll panel seized a “record amount” of money during elections.
“Even in elections to these five states (Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Telangana and Mizoram), seizures have been close to Rs 200 crore,” Rawat said.
“It shows that money during elections is coming from sources which are very influential and are not affected by such measures.”
Rawat demitted office on Saturday. Sunil Arora took over as the new chief election commissioner on Sunday. The counting of votes for Assembly elections in five states will take place on December 11.
