The Communist leaders affiliated to the CPM appear to be very upset with the "connections" of certain EC observers with the opposition and they have urged the CEC to take action.

CPI(M) demands action against election observer

The CPI(M) today urged Chief Election Commissioner B B Tandon to take action against the central observers allegedly having ''connections'' with the opposition parties and ''misusing their posts''.

Speaking to the mediapersons, CPI(M) state secretary Anil Biswas said, ''We have earlier complained that some central observers have links with the opposition parties. It was proved when observer for Howrah district N B Dhal instructed the Sankrail BDO, on a letter-head of Mr Arup Roy, district president of Trinamool Congress, to remove names of false voters and Bangladeshis from part one of the electoral rolls.'' ''The EC and the observer have their own letter-heads. So why did Mr Dhal use another political party's letter-head?'' Mr Biswas questioned.

''We have sent a letter to the CEC and urged him to take action against Mr Dhal,'' he added.
