Security Beefed Up Ahead of Nagaland Polls

Guwahati: Nagaland Police have increased patrols and security around the state in ahead of the state’s assembly election.

DGP Rupin Sharma was quoted by ANI saying, “Terrains in Nagaland are very difficult to commute even for short distances. Police personnel are putting a lot of effort in controlling law and order.

He further asked people to call the police if they have any unfavourable information about anyone attempting to instigate or plotting violence.

DGP Sharma said, “Checking vehicles is important to combat the transportation of liquor, contraband or cash during the election which is antithetical to the mode of conduct under the Election Commission of India that mandates a free and fair election, which means that the political parties, workers and people should abstain from giving or seeking favour to others.”

“Those people who have taken vehicles auctioned by Nagaland government to change the number plates as there are reports of using the vehicles with the government and police stickers are still on, must abstain from doing it, and if found using the old number plates, the vehicles will be impounded by the police,” he added.

Elections for the Nagaland assembly will be conducted on February 27 and the counting of votes will be done on March 2.
