"Directives have been issued to all the divisional commissioners, IGs zone, range DIGs, DMs and SPs for maintaining law and order during and after counting of the Lok Sabha elections," Principal Secretary (Home) Anil Kumar Gupta said in Lucknow.
    
It has also been mentioned in the directives that the sensitive areas of all districts, especially those having people of particular caste or mixed population, should be considered to be most sensitive and should be identified earlier, he said.
