Candidates' representatives maintain round-the-clock vigil on strongroom

CUDDALORE: 

            The counting centres in Cuddalore district have not only been brought under the constant vigil of security personnel but also under the watchful eyes of the representatives of the candidates in fray.

          Armed with photo identity cards attested by the Returning Officer, they are taking turns at the counting centres on 12-hour shifts: 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. They are not allowed to exchange shifts. A place on the campus has been earmarked for them and they are allowed to go to the strongroom once a day after signing the register.

       They have voluntarily taken up the assignment to see to it that the EVMs, carrying the verdict of the people are well guarded. For D. Ravichandran, a representative of All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhgam candidate for Cuddalore Assembly constituency, M.C. Sampath, the task is not new. He had undertaken the job in the 2006 Assembly elections and 2009 Lok Sabha elections. However, there is a vast difference this time round; the counting is a month after polling. Mr Ravichandran told The Hindu that the party high command had directed the representatives to turn up at the counting centre every day. Other party workers should remain vigilant outside the campus.

            G. Kannadhasan, a representative of Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam candidate for Cuddalore Assembly constituency E. Pughazhendi, said that regardless of the party affiliation the representatives mingled with each other. M. Navaneethakrishnan, a representative of the Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam candidate for Panruti Assembly constituency, P. Sivakolundu, said that he was working in the interest of his party. The task was neither tiresome nor boring. Besides representatives of recognised and registered parties, those of Independents too have willingly taken up the responsibility.
