Maoist posters call for boycott of Bihar polls
Munger: Maoist posters calling for boycott of
the coming Bihar assembly polls were found pasted at several places in Bihar`s Munger district today despite deployment of
security personnel in large numbers to instill confidence in the people.
``The posters have been recovered from public places and
state-owned buildings in Maoist-affected Haveli Kharagpur and
Dharhara police station areas,`` Superintendent of Police
M.Sunil Naik said.
Around 7.74 lakh people will exercise their franchise at
795 polling stations, including 161 sensitive ones, in the
Maoist-hit constituencies of Tarapur, Munger and Jamalpur in
the fourth phase on November 1, he said.
Naik said parallel phone line racking machines and
Google earth search were coming in handy to keep a watch on
the Maoists movement in the forests and hilly areas in the district.
Munger assembly segment had recorded only 31 per cent
polling in the 2005 assembly polls, official sources said.
``We have intensified campaign for increasing voter
turnout this time,`` official sources said.
