Congress urges EC to transfer officials ahead of bypolls in MP
New Delhi: A delegation of Congress leaders from Madhya Pradesh on Friday met Chief Election Commissioner OP Rawat and urged him to take steps to ensure free and fair bye-elections in the state, including transfer all officials with "dubious" track record.
The Congress delegation comprising Jyotiraditya Scindia and Vivek Tankha provided a list of state officials who they claimed had a record of favouring the BJP government in the state and urged the Election Commission to transfer them out of the area where bye-elections will be held. Bye-elections for Kolaras and Mungaoli assembly constituencies will be held on February 24 and results will be declared on February 28. The last date for filing of nominations is February 6.
