Panaji: The Congress party today accused the Election Commission in Goa of colluding with the Manohar Parrikar-led BJP government in the state following a tepid response to the complaint against two erring officials in the CMO.

"The Election Commission`s local officials are hand in glove with the ruling BJP led government in the state. We had pointed out violation of code of conduct by two officials of Chief Minister`s Office (CMO) but the EC officials have just sought a response from them," Congress Goa spokesman Durgadas Kamat told reporters here.
Congress had complained against Joint Secretary Siddharth Cuncolienkar and Officer on Special Duty (OSD) Giriraj Vernekar for allegedly running a campaign in support of BJP through their accounts on a social networking site.

Kamat said that the EC officials were indulging in action supporting the local government.
The Congress party, through its high command will file a complaint about the EC officials in the Election Commission of India headquarters, he said.

Earlier this week, Chief Electoral Officer Keshav Chandra had said that a reply has been sought from the two CMO officials, giving them 7 days time to respond.
