Tomorrow public holiday for elections

CUDDALORE: 

        April 13, the polling day, has been declared a public holiday as provided under Section 135 (B) of the Representation of People Act.

         Central and State government offices, government organisations, private concerns, factories and commercial establishments should declare holiday for that day to employees with a day's salary. Cuddalore and Villupuram Collectors P. Seetharaman and R.Palanisamy respectively have said this in identical statements issued by them. The polling would begin at 8 a.m. and go on till 5 p.m.

        Both the Collectors said that all arrangements have been made for the peaceful conduct of the polls and appealed to voters to exercise their franchise without fail.

            In Cuddalore district, Elector's Photo Identity Cards have been issued to all people. Voters could use either the EPIC card or booth slip issued to them by the officials. Bogus voters, if any, would face criminal action as provided under Section 171 F of the Indian Penal Code. Those voters who have not got the official booth slips would get them from the officials on the polling day, to be distributed 200 metres away from the booths.

          As many as 750 polling stations in Villupuram district and 291 in Cuddalore district have been identified as sensitive booths, where the polling process would be monitored through web camera-fitted laptops and micro observers. Security personnel would be posted in adequate strength at these booths.

           The stay of outsiders in groups, including those from other districts and States, in hotels and marriage halls has been banned on the polling day. Electronic Voting Machines and other polling materials would reach the polling stations by Tuesday evening. Polling officials would have to send SMS to higher-ups at the commencement of polling and then send messages at intervals of two hours about polling percentage.

            According to Mr. Palanisamy, the weekly shandies to be held on Wednesday in Villupuram district would be rescheduled for Thursday. The execution of the works under Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Scheme would be suspended on the polling day. TASMAC retail outlets and the bars attached to them would remain closed from 5 p.m. on April 11 to 5 p.m. on April 13.
