Director General of Police leave no stone unturned to make the forthcoming election smooth

Cuttack:29/1/19: Director General of Police (DGP) RP Sharma on Monday asked SPs, Range IGPs and DIGPs to prepare everything with utmost seriousness and leave no stone unturned to make the forthcoming election smooth and incident-free.

Holding a review meeting through video conferencing at the state police headquarters here, Sharma asked the officials to ensure smooth and peaceful conduct of the elections.

“There has been a rise in the number of booths compared to the election held in 2014. Therefore, there will be a requirement of some additional manpower in this years’ election,” he pointed out.

The DGP asked the SPs to assess the booths and make vulnerability mapping of the booths and critical polling stations basing on the past incidents of violation, Political rivalries, booth capturing etc during 2014 General Election and 2017 GP election.

He asked the SPs to furnish a detailed report on this to the ECI by January 29. He also asked the SPs to start the confidence building exercises in the districts, so as to create a friendly and fearless environment before the election.
