New Delhi, May 16 -- The Delhi government school teachers' body on Wednesday wrote to the Delhi Chief Election Officer (CEO) and complained over a host of issues faced by teachers during polling such as mismanagement, unequal pay and lack of conveyance.

Saying that the process for depositing EVMs and VVPATs "created total chaos", the Government School Teachers Association (GSTA) wrote, "Several polling personnel, especially lady officers, got hurt in the extreme situation of confusion."

The teachers' body contended that the teachers became "pendulum between strong room and reception counters" adding that while carrying "heavy cases of election material" some of them lost their belongings.
