District Collector Ila Tripathi has called for cooperation among political parties to ensure peaceful assembly elections. Tripathi, who also serves as the District Electoral Officer, held a review meeting with political party representatives at the collectorate assembly hall on Monday.
During the meeting, Tripathi emphasized the importance of cooperation from political parties in conducting the elections peacefully. Candidates participating in the elections need to obtain permission for campaign meetings, rallies, and other events, as well as for advertisements in various media platforms. Prior approval from the MCMC is required for news magazines, e-papers, television channels, local cable networks, social media, and short messages.
Tripathi informed that efforts are being made to increase the number of polling centers in certain mandals in the Mulugu Constituency, as well as in Wajedu and Venkatapuram areas under Bhadrachalam, which are located more than five kilometers away from existing centers. Additionally, candidates filing nominations must adhere to election rules. Only five people, including the candidate, are allowed within a 100-meter radius of the nomination receiving center during the filing process, along with three vehicles.
Tripathi also mentioned that candidates can file up to four sets of nominations. The review meeting was attended by election department officials, representatives of political parties, and officials from relevant departments.
