General observer Vipin Talati on Tuesday took stock of arrangements made for the Mandi parliamentary constituency byelection in Pangi tribal subdivision, which is a part of the Bharmour Assembly constituency.

Talati also held a meeting with sector and nodal officers. He directed the officers to ensure compliance of the guidelines given in the handbook for Returning Officers. He said most of the polling stations in Pangi fell in the shadow zone, so the officials should carefully collect the information received from there.

Pangi SDM Rajneesh Sharma, who is also Assistant Returning Officer, informed the observer that there were 35 polling stations in Pangi subdivision, out of which, three polling stations at Kulal, Chask Bhatori and Punto fell in remote areas.

The SDM said 201 officers and employees had been deployed on poll duty, out of which 51 were presiding officers and 150 polling officers.

The observer inspected the strong room set up in tehsildar’s office and Mahaliat-1, Mahaliat-2, Praghwal and Ghangeet polling stations.
