Share post:


TURA, April 18: The deployment of polling parties to their respective polling stations was completed in all five districts of Garo Hills on Thursday, paving the way for the efficient and effective conduct of the Lok Sabha elections on Friday.
In South West Garo Hills, a total of 15 polling stations under P-2 and 143 polling stations under P-1 have been manned by dedicated polling parties. These teams were dispatched well in advance of the poll date, demonstrating a commitment to a seamless electoral process.
In a commendable effort to promote inclusivity, the CEO of Meghalaya has provided over 100 wheelchairs to facilitate the participation of voters with mobility challenges. These wheelchairs have been strategically distributed to sector officers and will be readily available for those in need, ensuring that every eligible voter can exercise their democratic rights.
Furthermore, the current election season embraces environmental sustainability through the introduction of the ‘Green Election’ initiative.
As part of this initiative, each polling station has received two saplings provided by the Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) of Meghalaya.
These saplings symbolise a commitment to a greener future and will be planted by the first female and first male voters at their respective polling stations, fostering a sense of environmental stewardship among the electorate.
With all arrangements in place in South West Garo Hills, encompassing the constituencies of Ampati, Mahendraganj, and Salmanpara, and with 158 polling stations in place, the stage is set for a fair, transparent and inclusive electoral process.
