Answer

Correct Option is 1 and 3

"73rd and 74th constitutional amendments envisage the setting up of State Election Commission consisting of a State Election Commissioner to be appointed by the Governor of the state for conducting these elections. Hence statement 1 is correct. State Election Commissioner is an independent officer and is not linked to nor is this officer under the control of the Election Commission of India. Hence statement 2 is not correct. The State Election Commissioner cannot be removed from the office except in the manner and on the grounds prescribed for the removal of a judge of the state high court. And a judge of a high court can be removed from his office by the president on the recommendation of the Parliament. This means that a state election commissioner cannot be removed by the governor, though appointed by him. Hence statement 3 is correct. "
