The election commission promised that all polling stations for upcoming bye-elections, scheduled to be held on June 23, will be monitored by CCTV cameras.
Meanwhile, atleast half of the voting stations will be equipped with webcasting.
During a meeting with the political parties held today, the Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) of Tripura – Kiran Gitte assured that all necessary arrangements would be made to ensure free and fair polls in 6–Agartala, 8-Bardowali, 46–Surma (SC) and 57–Jubarajnagar constituencies, which were left vacant due to the resignation of two BJP legislators, disqualification of a BJP MLA and sudden death of a Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) MLA.
Besides, the Central Armed Paramilitary Force (CAPF) personnel will be deployed across these regions, alongside state police and the Commission has agreed to erect three-tier security to avoid any security breaches.
