Patna: A team of Election Commission officials led by Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Sunil Arora arrived in Patna on Thursday to review poll preparation in the run up of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in the country.
The ten-member EC team is on a two-day visit to the state capital to ensure the government is doing everything to hold free and fair election in the state.
On Thursday, Arora’s team was to hold meeting with the Chief Election Officer of Bihar, Nodal officers of police, excise, income tax, transport, commercial tax, railways, and civil aviation departments. They were also scheduled to meet with representatives of various political parties.
On Friday, the EC team will hold meetings with the top police brass, district election officers, and senior bureaucrats from all 38 districts.
“As always, our goal is to hold a free and fair election in all states and by acting early, it will allow us to identify any weakness in the system that we will work to rectify before the election day,” said Arora.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
