Uttar Pradesh entering the fifth phase of assembly polls on Thursday, the concerned authorities have stepped up security measures to avoid any untoward incident. At a polling office in Kanpur, authorities were seen queuing outside the assistance booths with Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) as they prepared for polling day.
Our preparations are complete and ready for polling. As you can see polling parties are moving towards their assigned booths in the district along with the teams of security personnel. Police constables have been deployed for the security of polling officials and an EVM in every vehicle,” said Hari Om, the district magistrate.
