ECI is one of the more trusted public institutions in the country, a 'war within' is extremely worrying, he said.

The SC, in TN Seshan case had made it clear that CEC doesnt enjoy a higher status than other ECs & must strive towards unanimity. Basic Constitutional norms must be respected, he tweeted.
