ELECTION COMMISSIONER SUSPENDED GENERAL OBSERVER FOR CHECKING PM’S CHOPPER IN SAMBALPUR Featured

Report;Bureau,Odishabarta 

Bhubaneswar,17/04/19:The Election Commission of India has suspended General Observer of Sambalpur Lok Sabha Constituency Mohammed Mohsin for inspecting PM Modi’s helicopter.

The Prime Minister had visited Odisha on Tuesday and addressed two rallies in Sambalpur and Bhubaneswar in a helicopter. However, the flying squad officers conducted a search in the helicopter.

As per an ECI press note, Karnataka-cadre IAS officer Mohammed Mohsin, who is deputed in Sambalpur as the General Observer has been placed under suspension with immediate effect for ‘actions contrary to the instructions of the commissions regarding SPG protesters’.

The Commission has considered the material available before it and prima facie finds it dereliction of duty,” said the letter.

The Election Commission of India appoints general observers in all parliamentary constituencies to ensure the conduct of a free and fair election. These are always officers from outside the state to ensure transparency and distance from the local administration.

In its suspension order, the Election Commission referred to a set of rules it had formulated in April 2014 for “SPGs” and another from March 2019.
