Uttar Pradesh Elections: Nearly 50,000 paramilitary security personnel deployed

As the election campaign for the first phase of assembly polls in western Uttar Pradesh ended on Tuesday evening, nearly 50,000 paramilitary personnel from 412 companies of central paramilitary forces were deployed at various locations to maintain law and order in the poll-bound state.
The police have cordoned off the state’s borders, and strict vigilance is being maintained in the 58 assembly constituencies that will vote tomorrow.
The officials also stated that police officials are keeping a close eye on the state borders of Haryana and Rajasthan, where they are recording car numbers. Polling officers and teams have been gathering at Krishi Utpanna Bajar Samiti since 7 a.m. on Wednesday to collect all required election materials, despite the tight security.
Furthermore, if candidate hoardings, banners, or posters are seen within a two-hundred-meter radius of polling booths, they will be removed immediately. Candidates who place banners larger than three by four and a half feet in election booths will be considered in violation of the Model code of conduct, according to the official.
All of the poll-bound states’ governments had previously been told not to abuse the official machinery.
Polling will take place tomorrow in Shamli, Mathura, Agra, Muzaffarnagar, Bagpat, Meerut, Ghaziabad, Gautam Budh Nagar, Hapur, Bulandshahr, and Aligarh.
From February 10 to March 7, elections in 403 assembly seats in Uttar Pradesh will be held in seven phases. On March 10, the votes will be counted.
