LS Election : Central Forces to arrive shortly in Tripura

AGARTALA, March 15 (TIWN): 5000 Jawans shortly to arrive Tripura keeping the upcoming Lok Sabha election. State’s law and order in Tripura is rightnow in deteriorating condition.

Personnel of the central armed police forces (CAPF) who will ensure security during the summer’s Lok Sabha elections will move 78 times across the country between April 11 and May 23, the most they have in at least the past 15 years, data from the Election Commission (EC) shows.

According to an official aware of the details, the election schedule in past years allowed for easier and fewer trips for the troops. Data from EC shows that in 2004, the troops moved 50 times; in 2009, 58 times; and in 2014, 68 times.

The schedule is drawn up after due deliberation, taking into account security and the local issues of each state including festivals and examination dates, an EC official said on condition of anonymity.
