Dehra Dun: The Congress Friday urged the Election Commission to go into the mass transfer of IAS and IPS officials in Uttarakhand just four months before Assembly polls, saying it was done with an eye on the elections.

In a letter to the EC, Deputy Leader of Opposition in the Assembly T R Behad and spokesperson of Congress Legislature Party (CLP) Kishor Upadhyay demanded cancellation of the transfers which violated the norm of at least three year tenure and where there was no specific ground for shifting an official.

They two leaders said all future postings and transfers of administrative and police officials should be subject to approval of the Election Commission so that fair and impartial poll, due early next year, can be ensured in the hill state.
