"As many as 210 vigilance squads have been constituted to keep a tab on the festival," said a Delhi Election Commission official. Cameramen will also take video footage of the various events.

"Political parties have been told that none of their candidates should deliver any political speech or do anything that can sabotage the harmony of the (November 6-9) festival," said the official.

Strict action would be taken if the candidates and their party members try to politicize the occasion, he added. Delhi goes to polls on December 4.
