PASIGHAT, Apr 16: Tight security arrangements have been made in East Siang for the Lok Sabha and Assembly elections scheduled to be held on April 19 next. To prevent any illegal activities in the elections, security forces was deployed for traffic movement and search operation in various parts of all three constituencies including the border areas of East Siang district.
East Siang Superintendent of Police (SP) Dr. Sachin Kumar Singhal said that with elections approaching, the defence forces under his supervision are on their toes to counter the law and order besides traffic issues which are likely to crop up due to the heavy rush of people pouring in the city. 
The cops have a herculean task ahead of them even as a slew of measures have been launched to prevent any untoward incident during the upcoming polling process, Singhal said. 
The SP threw light on measures undertaken to ensure incident-free and fair polling for the upcoming Assembly and Lok Sabha elections. Prior to elections, defence forces are fully prepared to ensure safety and instill confidence ahead of the simultaneous elections in the district. He further added that police officers and personnel were briefed on their roles and responsibilities in ensuring free and fair elections. 
Model Code of Conduct will be implemented in true spirit and the cops on duty will provide assistance to the eligible voters to exercise their rights on the polling day, assured SP Singhal. He also said that along with Naka checking at various places across the district, a vigilant watch is being kept on the border areas. After 5 pm on April 17 onwards, there will be a complete ban on election campaigning and strict action will be taken against those who violate it. He once again asserted that forces deployed will be dutiful, vigilant and maintain neutrality during the entire election process. Before concluding his media briefing, Singhal sought cooperation from the political leaders/workers and common public as a whole for peaceful, free and fair elections.
