Kolkata: In yet another stinging attack on the Election Commission, a day after it removed four police officers, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday accused the poll panel of acting at the behest of the opposition’s “syndicate of complainants”.
“They have no work. Few days back they changed two OCs (officers in charge of Labhpur and Mayureshwar police statetion). They removed officers yet again on Thursday. I don’t know what is the matter with the ‘syndicate of complainants’. Will the OC vote or will the IC go and vote? Vote will be given by the people.
“They are pitting one officer against another. They are shifting good officers on the words of CPI-M, BJP and Congress,” Banerjee said during an election rally at Nadia district.
Cracking the whip hours after a day’s visit by its full bench to Bengal, the Election Commission on Thursday removed Birbhum district Superintendent of Police Mukesh and officers of three police stations of the district where assembly polls will be held on April 17.
