About 10 Trinamool workers gathered near the state secretariat at Nabanna in Howrah district and set an effigy with the face of a demon, dressed in formals and with the name of the official pinned onto it -- on fire amid slogan shouting. After setting it ablaze, the workers waving party flags beat the effigy with sticks.

"Why is this person in charge of the election process in Bengal? Why a tainted person like him is allowed to function? We demand his immediate removal."He is playing into the hands of the BJP and the Congress. He has misled the EC," she added.
