New Delhi: Congress on Saturday hailed the Election Commission's decision to cover the statues of Chief Minister Mayawati and her party symbol-- the elephant-- installed at a number of places in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh.

Welcoming the EC's decision, party spokesman Abhishek Singhvi told reporters it is the job of the Election Commission to take appropriate steps in appropriate circumstances to ensure level playing field in the elections.

The remarks came close on the heels of the announcement by the Chief Election Commissioner S Y Quraishi that the Commission has decided that statues of the CM and BSP symbol-- the elephant-- will be draped until the completion of the Assembly poll process so that no one gets any political mileage.
