“Besides not issuing fresh approvals, even if the work has been approved but the work has not started, then the work orders will not be issued. However, ongoing works will continue,” said a senior civic official. He added that the directions are applicable to all cabinet and state ministers.
The circular also mentioned that if the directions are found to have been violated, the assumption will be that the work has been started to influence the voters in the area.
The work will then be immediately stopped and appropriate action should be initiated against them.

In order to keep check on distribution of money and liquor during polls, the state election commission has asked all the state authorities concerned to take help from the Income Tax department and banks. The election commission has also asked the authorities to keep a close watch on social media to avoid any untoward incidents of posts inciting violence among the general public.
“Take all the precautions like the Assembly and Lok Sabha elections. Keep a close watch on paid news. The rumours and posts inciting violence should be monitored closely and necessary action should be taken promptly. Apart from taking help from IT and banks for information on cash flow, the authorities should be alert about places like railways stations, airports and bus stops,” said J S Saharia, the Election Commissioner.
