Election Commission officials in Goa today said they have not yet received any written communication about transfer of a Amethi poll observer who stopped a motorcycle rally of Congress campaigner and Priyanka Gandhi's husband Robert Vadra on the charge of violating the model code of conduct in Uttar Pradesh.
Joint Chief Electoral Officer Narayan Navti told reporters here that the local office of the election commission has not received any intimation about Pawan Kumar Sen's posting in the coastal state.
"We did not receive anything in writing," he said, refusing to discuss further.
The EC had earlier clarified that the decision to post Sen was in process for a week.
The election commission had ordered posting of Sen, IAS officer of 2005 batch, as the district election officer in south Goa, close on the heels of the incident involving Vadra in CSM Nagar in Uttar Pradesh.
According to EC, Sen was supposed to replace south Goa Collector Sandip Jacques, who was shunted by the election commission owing to his earlier posting as the officer on special duty to Chief Minister Digambar Kamat.
Sen's appointment was accordingly ordered by the Commission well before the incident in CSM Nagar district took place, the EC had said.
