Mamata demands removal of 'tainted' EC official
Accusing Deputy Election Commissioner Vinod Zutshi of involvement in a scam, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Tuesday demanded his resignation.
"There is a case against this man in Rajasthan involving a land scam. Even a non-bailable warrant was issued against him but he got it stayed by Supreme Court," Banerjee told media persons in Durgapur in Burdwan district.
Banerjee demanded Zutshi's removal.
"Why this person in charge of election process in Bengal? Why a tainted person like him is allowed to function. We demand his immediate removal.
"He is playing into the hands of BJP and Congress. He has mislead the EC," added Banerjee.
