With less than 48 hours left for polling to begin for the Delhi Legislative Assembly,the Chief Electoral Office of Delhi has intensified its vigil in areas vulnerable to misuse of money,liquor and musclemen. Slum clusters and unauthorised colonies,besides areas bordering with UP and Haryana,have been put under strict surveillance.
The last 72 hours are crucial and we have sealed and laid traps in all JJ clusters,unauthorised colonies and all such areas where there could be possible misuse of money,liquor and musclemen, Chief Electoral Officer Vijay Dev said.
The Chief Electoral Office will also be strengthening vigil on the borders,especially in Northeast and Southwest districts.
We have the cooperation of UP and Haryana,who will ensure that a tight vigil is maintained in their states and there is no movement of liquor,cash and musclemen,which may vitiate the polls, Dev said.
To witness the democratic voting process in Delhi under the South-South Cooperation,29 foreign delegates will be external observers to the voting process,including eight representatives of the United Nations Development Programme,and 21 delegates from countries such as Zambia,Jordan,Iraq,Lebanon,Nigeria.
