Some members of videography teams, deployed by EC officials, on Tuesday, rued non-payment of their bills and met district election officer Kamal Kishore Yadav demanding the release of the amount.

A member of the team, on the condition of anonymity, said that they had been working since March 6 when the election dates were announced by the EC and have not been paid since then. Now they have been fired by the administration but without clearing their dues.

He said about 20 people were deployed and the administration owed an amount worth Rs 2 lakh.

"A representation in this regard was made to the administration on April 3 also but nothing has come out and we have to live without money," said another member.

District election officer Kamal Kishore Yadav, when contacted, said that some of these persons had met him on this issue and their funds are being released on priority.
