EC held a meeting with Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi, Chief Secretary DM Spolia and all district electoral officer, DCPs and Joint Commissioners of Police during which strategies were chalked out for checking the inflow of money, liquor and musclemen ahead of the February 7 polls.
"We are going to ensure that in cooperation with states such as Uttar Pradesh and Haryana, we are able to mount a tight vigil and ensure there is no inflow of liquor, cash and musclemen, which have the potential of vitiating the polls," said a senior EC official. UP and Haryana both share borders with Delhi.
The officer further said that a separate security plan is in place for each district of Delhi which has to be now approved by the observers.
Talking about the law and order situation in the national capital so far in the run up to the polls, the official said that 1,219 non-bailable warrants have been issued by Delhi Police.
Also, since the Model Code of Conduct for Delhi polls came into force, 65,000 bottles of liquor have been seized along with the recovery of cash worth Rs 12,20,000.
As for action under Model Code of Conduct, a total of 142 FIRs, including 60 against AAP, 31 against BJP, 37 against Congress and 12 against BSP, have been registered. Also, 26 unlicensed arms have been seized.
