    Please call her Commissioner Saran. We do not refer to male police officers as Mr!

    I dont understand why election commssion is so gung-ho about CoP’s statement and transferred him. I am not sure what authority they have over local government, because CoP is not just limited to election duties. It would have be more appropriate for the EC to have offered him an opportunity to take back his statement. Offering opinion nothing undemocratic and moreover, just assuming that he will influence the voters is absurd. If CoPs are let’s allowed to voice their opinions, similarly other people will voice their opinions may be against the ruling government, for eg., DGP, or DIG etc. This is just overstretching the powers of EC which have nothing to do with local administration. Changing a CoP is absolutely a prerogative of the state government and has nothing to do with EC at all in my opinion, unless it was a blatant violation of consititutional rights , or election rights.
