Hoshiarpur, January 21

Deputy Commissioner-cum-District Election Officer (DEO) Apneet Riyait said 45 flying squad teams have been deployed in all seven Assembly constituencies of the district to ensure adherence to the Model Code of Conduct. Teams have been formed according to the requirement of each assembly constituency, she said.

Sharing the details, she said six teams in Mukerian, five in Dasuya, six in Urmar, three in Sham Chaurasi, seven in Hoshiarpur, nine flying squad teams each have been formed in Chabbewal and the Garhshankar segment to conduct fair elections.

“So far, 186 complaints were sent to the flying squad in the district and all were disposed of in a time-bound manner,” Riyait added. Apart from the driver, every flying squad team consists of three police personnel, one cameraman, one flying squad team in-charge and a group-D employee.

The DEO said through the GPS installed on the vehicle of the flying squad team, every movement and location of the vehicle is being monitored by the teams posted in the office of the chief electoral officer and district election officer. There is continuous videography with the front camera mounted on the vehicle. These teams are playing an important role in resolving the grievances of the people so that the code of conduct should not be violated in the district. — OC
