EC Removed Kolkata Commissioner Rajeev Kumar


Kolkata : In an exceptional move, the Election Commission on Tuesday removed Kolkata Police Commissioner Rajeev Kumar who has been blamed for being a TMC sap.

While resistance parties say that the state EC was not being partial, the body’s decision may well prompt savagery amid the 17 April Assembly surveys.

The state EC that came under criticism following Monday’s polls, took this decision even as several complaints were lodged against the state’s Chief Election Officer Sunil Gupta, who is allegedly partial to the TMC.

Opposition parties also questioned the role of Sudhir Rakesh who was deputed by the EC to Bengal during the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.
