Lucknow: Not satisfied with the Election Commission's recent move of transferring Uttar Pradesh DGP and Principal Secretary (Home), Samajwadi Party on Monday demanded removal of the two officers as well as the Cabinet Secretary claiming their presence will not ensure "free and fair polls".

"The Commission has not yet transferred Cabinet Secretary Shashak Shekhar Singh, who can affect the polls. Also former DGP Brijlal has been posted as DG, PAC while Principal Secretary Home, Kunwar Fateh Bahadur has been holding charge of personnel department. Both of them should be removed from their present posts," SP spokesman Rajendra Chowdhury said.

The Election Commission had on January 7 transferred Uttar Pradesh DGP Brij Lal and Principal Secretary (Home) Kunwar Fateh Bahadur after major opposition parties accused the two officials of working as "agents" of ruling BSP.

As PAC is being deployed during polls and Brijlal heading them could affect polls, he said, adding that similarly Bahadur is heading personnel and appointment department and threatening officers.

"For free and fair polls these officers should be removed immediately," he said while requesting EC to check misuse of office by BSP ministers.
