IG collects feedback from SP

Tirupur: Inspector General of Police (West Zone) Pramod Kumar said that the police administration would soon come out with a police deployment plan, which in turn will be incorporated into the District Election Management Plan being prepared for the newly-formed Tirupur district.

He told this to The Hindu after a meeting of senior police officials in the district, as per the guidelines of Election Commission of India (ECI), to assess the law and order situation and to review overall election preparedness in the district, here on Thursday.

Official sources said that the deployment plan would be implemented at the ground level in letter and spirit once the typescript was accorded the final approval by the election observers to be appointed by the ECI for the various constituencies coming under district limits.

During the meeting, Mr. Pramod Kumar collected feedback from Superintendent of Police S. Shanti and sub-divisional officers on the requirement of force to safeguard the polling stations and counting centres, security to the electors and polling personnel and for securing the strong rooms where the Electronic Voting Machines would be stored.
