As per news report of NDTV,"He's acting as a political agent. He is not fit to be a collector, should be removed as a collector," Justice Vivek Agrawal observed. The court made the remarks while hearing the petition against the wrongful declaration of the winner in last month's vice-chairperson polls in Gunnor Janpad Panchayat. While hearing the matter, Justice Vivek Agrawal came down heavily on the Panna district collector Sanjay Mishra and said that the officer has "no regards for principles of natural justice" and thus should be removed from the post of district collector. The 25-member strong Gunnor Janpad Panchayat held elections for the post of chairperson and vice-chairperson on July 27.
