In an order issued to the Chief Electoral Officers of all states and Union Territories — shared with the media on Thursday — the EC has directed them to arrange for the pick-up and drop facility for the disabled from their residence to the polling station and back. Government vehicles may be used for the purpose, the EC directive said. (IANS)
