    Vikas Raj has asked officials to ensure fairness and transparency by forming intelligence committees at the district level. These committees will identify areas where expenses are likely to have an impact and monitor activities related to the distribution of liquor, drugs, money, and precious metals.

    He has also emphasized the need for heightened security and vigilance at helipads and the establishment of integrated check posts along the borders with Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Karnataka, and Andhra Pradesh. These measures are aimed at preventing the illegal movement of goods and currency.

    Enforcement agencies have been assigned the task of preparing comprehensive reports on seizures in each constituency and district. This will help in understanding sensitive areas and potential challenges.

    The CEO has also called for the creation of an election risk analysis cell within the headquarters of enforcement departments. This cell will assess and address potential threats to the electoral process systematically.

    The schedule for the Assembly elections is yet to be announced by the Election Commission.
