The role of the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) has been noted in the smooth and peaceful conduct of Assembly elections in the State.
Under the coordination of CRPF North Eastern Sector Inspector General Sonal V. Mishra, a total of 3482 polling stations were secured by the CAPFs in 59 constituencies across the State.
To this end, 119 companies of CAPFs drawn from across the country were deployed for election duties in the State. Eleven constituencies were in the districts that share an international border with Bangladesh and 18 constituencies shared their borders with Assam.
In addition to the personnel from CRPF, BSF, ITBP, CISF, SSB and RPF, the personnel of state police forces from Kerala, Karnataka, Goa, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Manipur were also deployed.
During the conduct of the election, the troops not only ensured incident-free polling but also went beyond the call of duty to aid senior citizens and specially-abled persons in casting their votes. These humane and noble gestures on the part of the troops were much appreciated in all quarters.
CRPF North Eastern Sector Inspector General Sonal V. Mishra also visited various polling booths today to review the security arrangements during the elections. She also interacted with the troops on the grounds and commended them for their dedicated service.
