In a letter to the Chief Election Commissioner, INLD general secretary RS Chaudhary said, "INLD has been raising the issue of misuse of authority by the Chief Minister in giving extensions  and re-employing the retiring/retired officers of the government (sic)".
Assembly polls are due in Haryana on October 15.
In the letter, the party has attached a list of names of officials, including of a number of retired IAS and IPS officers, who it alleged were "enjoying the CM's largesse".
"Needless to say the retention of such retired officers, that too in such large numbers obviously creates bias in favour of the ruling party and negates the process of holding free and fair elections," Chaudhary charges in the letter.     

"All these re-employed officers should be removed from their government posts to ensure that no biases and prejudices are caused in the electoral process and to ensure a level playing field," the former chief minister Om Prakash Chautala-led party demanded.
Notably, PV Rathee, who retired two years back as the Director General of Haryana CID and who was subsequently appointed as the Principal Advisor to Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda in the Home Department, including CID, tendered his resignation on Tuesday, official sources said.
Rathee's name was in the list submitted along with the letter by INLD to the CEC.
