Author: Desk March 15, 2019
The Election Commission’s multi-department committee on election intelligence will hold its 1st meeting at Nirvachal Sadan on Friday.
The meeting will aim to map almost every Lok Sabha constituency to check transportation of smuggled goods, drugs and liquor, besides cash and fake currency.
Top most on its agenda is “curbing covert expenditure” by candidates and political parties in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.
The meeting will also sensitise law enforcement agencies on the need for sharing intelligence, especially on economic offences.
The EC has also emphasised the need for each enforcement agency to institute district, state and national-level coordination plans and roadmap for this.
