EC removes two observers from Belgachia East constituency
Kolkata, Apr 27 (UNI) In a rare move, the Election Commission last night called back two Observers from the city's Belgachia East constituency following complaints by the CPI(M).
In an order late last night, the EC relieved Mr Durga Charan Sahoo of his responsibility as the Observer barely 15 hours after the removal of Expenditure Observer H R Bhimashankar, who had kicked up a controversy by describing the constituency as 'notorious'.
Confirming the news, Deputy Election Commissioner Anand Kumar said the EC, however, had deputed six Observers in place of Mr Sahoo.
Those, who have taken over as Observers for Belgachia East constituency, which had often been in the midst of controversy, are Anil Sandhu, Mr Ashok Siwani, Mr D N Bhar, Mr Ashish Chakraborty, Mr Din Ahmed and Mr Lalit Mohan.
