Hi Anurag,
     Thanks for clarification.

      If i am wrong, user is allowed to configure Priority value as 
zero(i.e., Maintenance_Event), priority value will be changed. And 
handling of the Maintenance_Event is done only in Master state and 
ignored in Backup and Init state.

> But if you are asking if priority = 0 should be allowed (either by user configuration or dynamically) when the router is in "Init" or "Backup" state then I think the answer should be yes, It should be treated just like any other change in priority is treated when the router is in these states.
