Tripura Chief Electoral Officer Kiran Gitte has conducted review meetings ahead of the counting of votes. The meetings were held in the presence of state Chief Secretary JK Sinha, Director General of Police (DGP) Amitabh Ranjan, Additional DGP Saurabh Tripathi, and other senior officers.
The officials discussed following the guidelines of the Election Commission of India to ensure a smooth completion of the counting process. They also mentioned that meetings with political parties, candidates, and election agents shall be held by the District Magistrates, Superintendents of Police, and Returning Officers.
