MANGALDAI: In the smooth conduct of the general election in the second phase in Darrang district under No. 8 Mangaldai HPC on April 18, Darrang Police played a very important role for peaceful polling without any untoward incident.

Superintendent of Police of Darrang, Amrit Bhuyan, with active support and cooperation of Additional Superintendent of Police Ujjwal Pratim Barua, Deputy Superintendent of Police (HQ) Mamoni Hazarika and Deputy Superintendent of Police (Border) Anita Hazarika, prepared a detailed action plan and executed it in the proper way. Significantly, the members of Village Defence Party (VDP) too extended all help and cooperation in conducting free and fair election. All the senior police officials were seen monitoring and supervising the security arrangements personally.

For the smooth polling in 860 polling stations under Darrang Police, ten companies of armed force and more than 700 jawans of Home Guards were deployed. The timely arrival of the senior police officials in the spot also thwarted the evil design of the anti-social forces to create law and order situation in some remote places.

On the other hand, in this election, the Transport Cell rendered their sincere service in providing hassle-free transportation in taking the poll officials to their destined polling stations on time. The smooth arrangements have also ensured the safe return of these officials.
