Staff Reporter

DHARMAPURI: Election Observer Sanjay R. Bhoosereddy on Thursday warned against spread of rumours regarding distribution of cash, clothes and other gifts to the voters in Pennagaram constituency. Participating in an all-party meeting convened at the Collectorate, Mr. Reddy asked the political parties to remove the revolving red lights atop the cars of the VIPs till the elections were over and added that the election-related incidents were being videographed by the cameramen appointed by the Revenue Department.

People can obtain the copies of the video by applying under the RTI Act.

Issues

The district election authorities are initiating steps to establish standing committees to resolve the issues either on day to day basis or on weekly basis.

He asked the outsiders to leave the constituency 48 hours prior to polling, if not they would be forcibly driven out of the constituency.

Former Minister T.M. Selvaganapathy participated in the meeting on behalf of DMK.

He said some parties were unnecessarily creating problems by complaining that the voters were being bribed and hence, action should be taken against those giving false information.

DMDK State office-bearer Ilango and its candidate K.G. Varman boycotted the all-party meeting saying that no action was initiated though they gave information about bribing of voters.

Inspector transferred

Meanwhile, Chandran, Inspector, Papparapatti, was transferred to Harur sub-division on Thursday by the Observer. The PMK workers had staged a road blockade some days back. He was transferred for not taking action against complaints regarding violation of code of conduct.

P. Amutha, District Election Officer, D.P. Ahuja, Election Observer, R. Maheshwari and other party leaders participated in the meeting.
