State Election Commissioner (SEC) Ajit Kumar Tripathy on Monday met Governor SC Jamir to explain his stand on allegations by the Congress that he played a partisan role during the urban local body (ULB) polls by not acting against ministers and BJD leaders who allegedly violated model code of conduct.

The SEC, however, declined to comment on what transpired at the meeting.

The Governor had called Tripathy after a  delegation of the State Congress leaders submitted a memorandum to him on Friday accusing the SEC of being partisan and acting in favour of the BJD. The delegation demanded removal of the SEC before polls to the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) is held.
