The state Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) Sriram Taranikanti on March 15th, 2019 said that the deputy election commissioner Sudip Jain would visit Tripura on March 17th, 2019 to review poll-preparedness.
Jain would hold meetings with officials of the state election department and top police officers. “If time permits, he would also meet representatives of political parties,” Taranikanti said as PTI reported.
Talking about the requirement of central forces for the election, Taranikanti said, “We are not divulging now our demand for central security forces and how much we are getting from the Centre. Maybe we would be able to let you know it after a few days.”
