Generally very wise and careful in choosing his words, in his post-poll media interaction, Mistry vehemently dismissed any interference of Rahul Gandhi or Sonia Gandhi in this election. He insisted that the elections were conducted in a completely democratic manner without any pressure or interference. His statement proved to be true when Congress Presidential candidate Shashi Tharoor described him as a ‘fair minded’ person. His electoral stance was so strong that Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh compared Mistry to former Chief Election Commissioner T N Seshan. “He (Mistry) is tough and honest and is capable of conducting fair, free and transparent elections,” he said.
