Posted on

The Ministry of Home affairs on Wednesday put out a nation-wide alert to states over possibility of eruption of violence in different parts of the country in connection with the counting of votes, reported the ANI.


Ministry of Home Affairs has alerted the State Chief Secretaries & DsGP regarding possibility of eruption of violence in different parts of the country in connection with the counting of votes tomorrow.

“MHA asks States and UTs to maintain law & order, peace & public tranquility.” the MHA alert said.

States/UTs were further asked to take adequate measures for the security of strong rooms and venues of counting of votes. “This is in the wake of calls given and statements made in various quarters for inciting violence and causing disruption on the day of counting of votes.” ANI quoted MHA as saying.

The unusual advisory comes against the backdrop of a sharp campaign by opposition parties against the Election Commission who they accuse of interpreting the law and rules in favour of the ruling alliance.
