As we are drawing closer to the Dholpur elections, the curiosity and anticipation is only rising by the day. Imagine, if 4 days before the election, there is such frenzy about the election, the D-day will be a maddening day, indeed. The Rajasthan police caught the whiff early and will deploy 2000 police men for safety purposes.
Around 2,000 policemen have been deployed in the district to maintain security and peace in the Veer Bhoomi. These policemen will be on-duty from the election day to it’s ensuing counting days.
The para military forces including two companies each of Border Security Force (BSF) and Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) will guard 232 booths. Not only this, 68 sensitive booths have also been identified by the police where extra force will be deployed.
Dholpur also boasts of Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh as neighbours. Owing to the eventualities of the people and the place, vehicles coming from these areas will also be checked.
The entry, including boating at Chambal river, passing through Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh has been banned until April 13, the day on which Dholpur By-poll results will be announced.
As many as 18 check-points across Dholpur have been identified. At these 18 junctures, strict check of cars carrying liquor bottles or wine will be monitored.
