New Delhi, Jan 16 : Notwithstanding Congress backing the Election Commission's direction to the Mayawati government on the statues issue, senior leader Digvijay Singh was on Sunday  critical of the constitutional body's decision, saying it should have frozen the BSP symbol ‘elephant' in the run-up to the Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh.

“If the EC had a problem with elephants, then they should have frozen the symbol. How many elephants can be covered.  They can cover the statues of elephants but what about living elephants. I don't agree with this decision,” he told reporters.

Singh's remarks comes days after Congress fully supported the EC's direction.

Mayawati today accused the EC of succumbing to Congress pressure by directing her government to drape her statues as also that of the BSP symbol ‘elephant'.
