The state personnel department sent a letter to the Election Commission last week expressing difficulties in sending the four IAS officers. One of them is on a long study leave while the rest are posted in key departments.
The six officers requisitioned are --- Anand Vardhan Sinha, Manoj K Srivastava, Amita Paul, Navin Verma, Ravi Kant and Subash Sharma. Except for Sharma and Sinha, the personnel department said it could not release the others and suggested Ajit Kumar, S K Negi, Shishir K Sinha and Lian Kunga as replacements.
The Election Commission is yet to respond to the letter.
