Tight security at counting centres

 
ROUND-THE-CLOCK VIGIL:Collector P. Seetharaman inspecting the counting centre in Periyar Government Arts College in Cuddalore on Wednesday.

CUDDALORE: 

          For the purpose of providing foolproof security to the counting centres, three zones have been earmarked, namely inner perimeter, middle perimeter and outer perimeter, according to P. Seetharaman, Collector and District Electoral Officer.

          He made this observation to The Hindu after inspecting the security arrangements along with Superintendent of Police Ashwin Kotnis at Periyar Government Arts College, serving as the counting centre for four Assembly constituencies such as Cuddalore, Panruti, Neyveli and Kurinjipadi, on Wednesday.

           The Collector said that the inner perimeter was the zone where the electronic voting machines were kept in strongrooms and guarded by the armed personnel of the Central Para Military Forces (CPMF) and the Tamil Nadu Special Police (TSP) Force. One laptop each had been placed in front of every strongroom, in which the EVMs from a particular Assembly constituency were kept, to monitor round the clock the activities through web camera.

            Mr. Seetharaman said that all those entering the inner perimeter, including himself, the SP and election observers, would affix their signature and time of entry and exit in a register. In the middle perimeter, TSP personnel had been stationed and also representatives of the candidates of various political parties. The watchtowers too had been erected in this zone and armed guards posted. In the outer perimeter, that is, outside the campus, local police personnel had been deployed. Mr. Seetharaman said that no procession or meeting would be allowed within one-km radius of the counting centres.

                Uninterrupted power supply and flood-light arrangements too had been made in each of the centres. Striking force personnel and fire service personnel too had been kept ready, he added.
