Kochi | The Kerala High Court has directed the Election Commission of India to convey its views on conducting pre-election surveys by the media.

Justice Mohammed Mushtaq directed the Election Commission Monday to file its statement before April 4.

The order was issued on a writ petition filed by M K Moideen Kutty of Malappuram seeking a direction to declare as unconstitutional pre-election survey on the basis of religion and community by the media in assembly poll-bound Kerala.
