Amidst controversies of ‘cash for vote’, the authorities tightened the noose. Places like wedding halls, community halls, lodges, and the guest house were checked for any such outsiders. As per the Election Commission, 75 flying squads, 21 static surveillance squads, and 20 video squads were on duty to monitor the election process in RK Nagar. As many as 45 check posts were also made operational for smooth conduct of the RK Nagar by-election. Here are all the details regarding the upcoming polls.
